I’m a single mother to three children and two dogs.
I’ve been working in public education for… well, way too long to count. I specialize in working with children with autism, that is my passion. I am one of those lucky few who love and are passionate about their jobs. And then, there’s writing…
I’ve experienced many losses in the last few years, writing (and an amazing therapist) have pulled me out of some truly bottomless pits. I come to First Pages to try to sort through my thoughts and hopefully help some of you sort through your own, sometimes awkward, thought patterns.
I like to experience the connection that’s possible with those we are meant to be connected.
I write because I can, because I have to — my brain can’t hold all those words and thoughts, a good supply of paper and journals is a necessity.
I am learning and growing and evolving each day, that’s why we’re here.
I am brave, honest, real, fragile, and strong. I’m often scared, but I’ve realized that you have to be scared to be brave. I love so big that it sometimes hurts — I love anyway. I believe some of the most beautiful of things are born from pain, from angst… but especially from love, big scary love.
I mess up… a lot, but don’t we all? It’s how we deal with the messes that matters.
I often need an understanding ear to hear me, I always have an understanding ear to hear you.
I have a feeling “The ever evolving words about me” page will be changing often, as I am experiencing some profound changes in my life.
“I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable and beautiful and afraid of nothing as though I had wings.” ~~ Mary Oliver
