I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?

Surface Self

    She stands unevenly as if poised to run, or topple, or drop into a hole opening up under her by sheer wish power, and her eyes have pieces of broken sky in them. You noticed her and she … Continue reading

The Devils Playground

A place of light and color and ice cream truck music, where all the slides had flowers, and all the swings had rabbits to help push, and the smell of summer was in my eyes, in my face and hair. … Continue reading

Dancing On the Head of a Pin

I keep my feet moving,  fast, fast, in fervent hope that it will keep my mind stepping in place, in unison, that I can prevent that slide, that clumsy slipping toward the edge. The head of this pin has little … Continue reading
