Female, age 67. California born and raised except for a few years in Arkansas. Married too young, too long, divorced, I've one son who is my good friend. Teaching myself to draw traditionally and mix it with digital. Plans to teach myself traditional water color. I still play around with music (keyboard). And I've poetry, novels, and story ideas somewhere between my ears. There's always so much I want to do. I'm always busy, never bored, wishing for more hours in the day and less time required for illness, including fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Meanwhile fwiw: I'm very forthright, truthful and comfortable speaking my mind, which is how I believe we all should be...otherwise why bother to speak to anyone, or even to yourself?

Soft Sunny Yellows,

"It's not how piercing the comebacks,
but how meaningful the argument." ツ
"If the light be truth, I always choose the light.
If the dark be illusion in which to hide,
I choose to illuminate.
If in between I fall and must again choose,
I hope always to use the dark as the direction from which I depart,
and not arrive."
This LifeThis life is not . . .
who you are, how you look,
what you get, or how you deal
It's about . . .
who you met, what you said,
how you gave, and what you feel.
I'd lost this collaboration and refound.
J-vdb made my poem even more beautiful.

Letters . . .raw thought
Poetry, ah!, poetry
images in mind
I can neither see nor find
I only feel
and back to music reel
Then to a thought
Soon to another
and so I write
Letters . . .
Just A MessageI say,
make friends with yourself,
be at ease with yourself,
as the old adage "Wherever you go, there you are"...
You cannot leave yourself behind,
nor should you even try.
Let it go with you everywhere,
as both shadow and leader...
Learn, grow, make friends, and be at peace
with the one you first met
and will last hear with your last breath,
the person you know best...
an individual unlike anyone else
at any time.
for your time, comments, favs,
watches, everything. I'm pleased you stopped by.
Sorry if I can't always reply.
