Hot in July Thinking….

What’s in a blog?

Your heart?

Your soul?

Your thoughts?

Your SELF?

You may not think about such things, but I have and when I show up here, I ask myself, “why?”  What is it I WANT …what do I HAVE to say today?

When I post I feel like I am talking a friend that has shown up to watch the show.

The jazz singer that steps out on stage in a lonely smokey room to sing her sorrows to the few sipping on their whisky and wine.


Naked, but not blind, to the words that fall onto the white sheet of blank screen—like lotion on the skin–ready to ease the pain, the itch, the…….crave……to talk…to….anyone…who…will….listen…..


It matter’s….the stranger…in the dark….who knows nothing…but……what I say….right now…right here….

It’s comforting…

It’s safe….it’s delightful…it’s


Thanks to all that listen and respond and look…

Thanks for being there as a sound board

It’s controlled…..

Life is full of all kinds of……….

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.
