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 developed a love of writing early — who knows when. I remember loving the units in school about poetry… I loved making the poetry notebooks. Reading Frankenstein and Dracula and Little Women, oh, and Sybil — my reading tastes are eclectic.
When I was 13, I wrote a poem to Princess Diana about the birth of Prince William — I got a response. I have it framed, there’s a single teardrop from when I opened it, true story.
I’m a single mother to three children and two dogs and I am learning and growing and evolving each day, that’s why we’re here.
I’ve experienced many losses in the last few years, I come to First Pages to try to sort through them and hopefully help some of you sort through your own, sometimes awkward, thought patterns.
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 expanded my (public) creative boundaries several months ago and opened an Etsy shop, a place to show my paintings and creations.
I like to experience the connection that’s possible with those we are meant to be connected to.
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
