A love of writing has led me here. As a mom, homeschool parent, dabbler in Zentangle art, lover of photography and nature, poet, writer, and one who devours all good writing . . . I’m hoping I can share my poetry, writing, photography, ideas, vision, and inspiration. While it may seem hard to believe from my first posts, I do not always write in rhyme – but use different styles depending on my mood and how the words flow.
Rhyme is a tough one for me though – as I often think in rhyme. I love it! Just ask my kids – I drive them nuts this way. Just imagine if your mom rhymed what she said to you! I grew up with Dr. Seuss and have been hooked since. Believe it or not – outside of the house – NO ONE knows this! It’s just not something most people want to know – aside from all of you! Yes, believe it or not – most people don’t even know that I write! You do realize not everyone cares about poetry, right?!?
Believe it or not – despite my love of rhyme – my love of good writing started somewhere different. I was an early reader and actually grew up with Edgar Allen Poe – Nathaniel Hawthorne, Robert Frost and Alfred Lord Tennyson (to name a few). My light in now way compares to theirs – but truly, they made my light a bit brighter by their influence! I could do nothing else but try to write.
Actually, through my antics – I have been able to grow a deep love of poetry and literature in my children. I’m trying to be a good example to them – believing in my own voice – believing in the gifts I have to share. It is because of them that I have decided to blog – to share our love of words with the world.
I hope you crack a smile, shed a tear, or find inspiration on these pages.
The writing is all my own creation.
