About Me

 

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.

    • I will have to check it out. I can’t imagine how much fun that would be. I do that with my kids – no one else seems to appreciate the ability. I don’t mind. I’m happy where I’m at.

    • I sometimes have to struggle to write free verse – and often will rewrite it to rhyme because it works better for me. I guess it’s just the way I’m wired. I absolutely abhor forced rhyme – which seems to be all the rage these days in song lyrics. There’s nothing worse – except perhaps scratching nails across a chalkboard. I guess I’m picky that way.

    • I know what you mean. I have been doing it for so long that it comes easier – but even I struggle sometimes. Most of the time I refuse to push forward until it says what I want – with proper rhyme. Otherwise it’s just not worth writing. I absolutely love free verse – but often can’t shut off the rhyme in my head!
