” Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly & & tenderly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.”
I am so happy you have found my blog and I hope to be able to keep it up. But let’s not hold our breath
Now that I have found my groove….
This ABOUT is about my blog, not so much me. My hopes and dreams for this space is mainly for my creative expressions. In writing, music, and in other mediums that require more use of my hands.
I have been writing for myself since I finally was able to convince my older brother to teach me how, Before I started school. There are many good things to be said about having an older brother. This may be one of my most cherished.
I’ll write about anything that comes to my mind that I believe has some value and merits for someone other than me. I write about life and all that it brings me, brings us as a large community. I am a firm believer in community. I write about my life and the delights and wonders it brings to my smaller world
I also express myself through music& art. What I prefer to call folk art. I have some problem with the word craft and am not sure why. So I prefer in my case folk art. Paper is my current popular medium of choice. All kinds. Then add adhesives, ways to cut, trim, and sculpt paper, and any way to add color & texture and I am on my way. Of course I add canvases, embellishments I make, beads, ribbons, you name it any kind of ephemera. The results are collages, altered books, shadow boxes, 3D arts, memory and scrapbooks, hand crafted cards just to name a few.
I am a vocalist starting from the time I could make a peep, Both parents were involved with music and held weekly jams while I was growing up. I have lived most of my life near & with music and those who make it happen. I am an avid songstress, learning lyrics to new songs in short order add to my repertoire of hundreds I have collected over 50 yrs
And still I write… still need to express myself ~
