If you're reading this, you're probably one of the people who has been supportive of my work in one way or another. Maybe you've celebrated my successes with me, perhaps you've been awed by some of my photographs, maybe you've found resonance with something I've written about my experiences with grief and transformation.
I have been writing since I was an adolescent. Pursuing writing was the first big risk I took in my life - the first of a series of risks to get to where I am now, following an unconventional path and forming a meaningful and wholehearted life for myself. My junior/senior year of high school it became clear I wasn't going to be the veterinarian or plastic surgeon I had visioned, and I turned toward poetry and creative writing as my major in college. Since then I've turned away from writing professionally aside from some publications in small poetry collections or newspapers. Most of this creative outlet goes on Instagram, and that little bit of sharing really feeds the creative 5th house Leo curled up in my heart.
So I hate blogs, and I don't really read them, but I'm wanting a place where I can develop my writing and create fuller-length pieces, perhaps for publishing, but really just for musing and satisfying the need I have to dig deep into my heart, my body, my mind. Please feel free to engage with these essays in whatever way. Your feedback truly nurtures my soul and pushes me to constantly become as a thinker and maker.
With deep love & care,
