Winter so clearly reflects the need of the spirit to bare all, so it might return to life with renewed energy, passion, and capabilities. A time to prepare for the journey ahead, as deeper aspects of life call out to you! The Winter, when utilized to its greatest good, will produce a way to Spring forward in the right direction. Changes on the outside, always demand a change on the inside. The Seasons of life will never find, or leave you, exactly the same*
I started writing in 1997. Not that I wanted to write; I always had other plans! Life ..where was it leading? I found myself doing anything that would keep me from slipping back into the superficial existence I felt trapped in. I needed something more, something that would provide greater freedom to be myself; something both fascinating and meaningful.
I was determined to never again trap myself, determined to never again lose myself at the sake of my own individualality. Truth inspired me, depth inspired me; Color, creativity, and imagination intrigued me. Where would I find what I searched for?
I waited and wondered, keeping up with the pace of what needed to be done. To keep myself busy I began putting my mother's writings from her many journals into books bound with ribbon. Little did I know I was a writer in training. My own heart eventually opened up to a new world; a world full of truth, creativity, and dreams! Writing takes me as far as I am willing to travel!
