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?

I Am the Sun

I lie back to watch the clouds, and listen to the grass sigh under me as it slumps, forming to my languor,  and I pretend I am a chalk outline ready to be filled with colors and shapes from a … Continue reading

Chameleon Madness

I change the pain to fit the face  of the one fielding the telling to, shifting the colors to their mouth tightenings, a raised eyebrow deepens the green and mutes the red, any sardonic tskings make the pattern sink shamefaced … Continue reading
