Daydream #4


 Watching my daughter walk up a trail hiking with her newest best friend was endearing.

I remember my favorite friends as a young girl and how much fun I had with them.

Laughing, crying, playing all day long.

Nothing seemed to disturb our bliss, not even silly boys that chased us around the school yard.  We always had each other and we always seemed to be complete.

Friends have come into my life and out.

My mother told something when I was getting ready to go off to college and having a hard time leaving some high school friends that I will consider myself lucky, if as an adult up in the distance, I could count 5 people as true friends.

Adulthood is lonely.

 I have had times when I needed a friend.

After a certain time in one’s life friends turn into adults with families and/or responsibilities that take over most of their time.

It becomes more challenging to “get together” to share moments, to even talk on the phone.

If I didn’t “TEXT” I wouldn’t talk to half the friends I do now!

Life is busy.

Friends are busy.

I am busy.

But knowing that I have my friends as friends is what counts.

I am lucky enough to say I know some very good friends that would stop their very busy life if I really needed them.

I have some family members that I couldn’t say that about.


Because they are my friend.

We share or shared something strong enough that connected our beings together until the end.

I have always dreamed of having friends surrounding me in my life’s journey.

I do.

I am grateful .

All I can hope is that I am as good a friend to them as they are to me.

Love to all my friends.

It goes deep.

No matter where you are, where I am or what time of day

distance or time can not take that away.

I am a self taught photographer and mixed media artist with a degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts in classical theatre performance. Stage was my first love and brought me into the world art while photography is what made me want to stay. I am married to superman, and am the mother of three little super-ducks. I studied creative writing at the Univeristy of Tn and classical drama at the NC School of the Arts, and a Masters in Education with concentration of inclusion and curriculum. I've liived in NYC and LA for the past decade and moved back to TN for some home cooking and back yard fun . I spend most of my days getting little ones through life and playing in my studio. I sell my work through different venues and am really happy where I find myself these days. I love to drink a bottle of wine (with my hubby) coupled with extra cheddar blast goldfish! Having kids has changed my life, the arts has shaped my life, and my soulmate continues everyday to walk through my life beside me. What else could a country city girl like me need.
