About the author…

I love words…I aspire not to be a great writer, but simply to write. If my words are in and of themselves great, then all the better…When it comes to describing ourselves in great detail, there are two kinds of people in this world: those that know just where to start and what to say, and those who haven’t the slightest idea of where to begin. It is not that those in the latter group are unsure of their attributes, nor that they feel they have so many as to never do them justice. Call it shyness, call it insecurity, call it whatever you like. Having said this, I suppose that you can imagine which category I place myself in.Everytime I think of how to tell people, particularly those of the virtual persuasion, anything about myself and who I am, I draw a blank. How to convey in a few words and spaces the complexity of any human being, of thoughts and feelings, emotions and dreams? Some can do it with ease, creating beautiful poetry with their words. I, however, have never styled myself a poet, simply an aspiring writer with many of the same hopes and wishes of all young women my age, truly original only in that I am, in fact, me, and not someone else.In 27 years of living, not long at all in the grand scheme, I have tried to be many things that I am not, and avoided being many of the things that I actually am. I have donned hats of every shape and size, color and style, trying to find the perfect fit (or perhaps avoiding the fit I knew existed all along). It has taken me this long, but I think that I have finally come to the conclusion that what I am, whatever that is, is the right thing for me to be. I have finally figured out that I don’t have to be a poet, as long as I let myself be the poem.


My reminder to always “be the poem…”
