I could go on and on about who I am and what I am aspiring to be but I believe you will learn everything you need to know about my world through my words (and a little more than you bargained for). 

In this time and space I am filled with an overwhelming passion to love and inspire and be. It is with creative energy and extraordinary authenticity that I am ready. I am relevant. I am writing…

…I wrote those words in September (’10) and I am still writing. I am still relevant. However, I am far from ready. Honestly, I’m afraid and overwhelmed and fighting the urge to delete this site before I reveal too much, describe too little or offend too often.

I recently discovered that I have no idea what I am doing…technically, but seem to have found a rhythm…vocally. So I’m going to keep going and I welcome you to keep reading, start reading, and if this isn’t quite what you were hoping for…stop reading. I’ve found a niche. Somewhere in my experiences of being black and white in a world of either or lies my purpose and that is where my writing will focus.

With Artistic Appreciation,
