Don’t Miss the Birds

I miss my old life The energy of travel Excitement of the road underneath Pavement, skies, water shifting rapidly past as cars, planes, boats go sailing by The life where I lost all control sense of self a moribund reminder of who i was yet to become Now, I’m here some say i’ve arrived AtRead more

Art as Protest

One of the things that has been on my heart to write about lately is how creativity and art forms can be used as a form of protest. Protest can take many shapes but really it depends on your goal. Who are you trying to engage? What’s your ultimate purpose for creating the art? Who’sRead more

The Art of Lament and Release

Today is my birthday. Not just any birthday. It is one year closer to 40, over the threshold of 35. I never put too much emphasis on the idea 40 is pushing anything other than my heart, mind and soul into (hopefully) another decade of living intentionally.  This year I decided to focus on theRead more

Embrace Being a Tall Poppy

The year 2017 brings a new era for my coaching business and creative writing endeavors. One of my goals is to encourage others to identify, learn and share their stories through sharing more about myself. I encourage you to comment, like and share whatever most appeals to you.

One aspect of being a creative coach is helping women, particularly moms and current or aspiring mompreneurs design their vision. When thinking about what you want to do with your gifts, talents and abilities, it is very important to define what you want to do, where you are going and your target audience. While thoseRead more

Pieces

The crimson tide of red wine flowed. Like blood pouring out life, the wine crept into the crevices of the sidewalk, amidst the broken glass. Like the pieces of my life, the ragged edges glistened, scattered and quiet, waiting to be delicately, patiently picked up and thrown away. This was the scene my mind paintedRead more
