I’m beginning this blog as an act of agency to counter self-oppression. I mean that with the utmost seriousness. I’m also starting it because my opinions are longer than a Facebook post. I believe I have valuable information to give regarding art, writing, mothering and life-style. I’m ready to share myself and what I have to offer. I’m ready for you to disagree with me, dislike me, or like me—whichever you prefer!
To quote a Facebook post I wrote this morning, “I refuse to be ruled by fear.” I am sick of fear. I am tired of finding it hiding in small crevices of my mind. I don’t want to be afraid of someone thinking I’m pretentious or dull. I don’t want to be afraid of failing. I don’t want to be afraid that I will never try or that I will never be successful to the level I want to. And lastly, I don’t want to be afraid of the demands that will come with success.
I hope you will decide to live as boldly and as well as you can. I will be encouraging you to do so. As a teaching artist I consider it my job to stimulate your mind with ideas and enhance your life by cultivating peace. The very things I crave, I give. Thank you for joining me in this journey!
