“Words are flowing out, like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass, They slip away across the universe.
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy
Are drifting through my open mind,
Possessing and caressing me
Jai Guru Deva, om
Nothing’s gonna change my world…”
-The Beatles, Across the Universe
Welcome to the place where I purge my feelings, share my thoughts and indulge in writing about the things that matter to me. I’ve been writing my whole life. Sometimes the words end up on paper, sometimes they linger in my mind for later use. Sometimes they end up on this blog where I toil over the flow of words and obsess over every detail. And soon I hope to have some of my words land on the pages of a book that I’ve been writing in my head for an embarrassingly long time.
I’m a writer, a mom of three, and a wanna-be groupie (I love to see live music and sometimes it gets excessive.) I’ve lived in the Southeast my whole life and have finally accepted and embraced my southerner status. Things that I love immensely: my kids, new music, old music, being lost in a book, conversations that make me think, dry humor, dark humor, the mountains, road trips, and -of course- writing.
I have no agenda, no schedule, no outline. I simply write about what is rolling around in my mind or kicking me in the gut. I’m inspired by music and find it hard to write without my headphones on. I’m inspired by the words of other writers, their art, their prose, their blood on the page. And I’m inspired by the things going on all around us. The struggles and the triumphs. I’m honored that anyone would take the time to read my words and I’m grateful that you’re here.
