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?

End of the Summer Musings and The Still Lady (*non alcoholic*)

  The summer flew by in a time bending kind of way. Days crept passed, long and slow and piled teetering high with busywork,  but then POOF! the week would have somehow disappeared and the months were changing as if … Continue reading

Who Can Lock the Door?

How can one stand at the window and turn away while locking the shade safely, securely, down? Who can lock the doors  as the waters rise, while wiping the good words from sculpted lips  with a fine and flawless linen … Continue reading

Wish Upon A Star

I wished upon a falling star, and it landed in my lap and when I tried to pick it up the edges cut me, so I knew that what I wished for must have been you, and the pain reminds … Continue reading
