Stepping Into I Fall

Summer is coming to an end like a good book with only  pages to read–

–never wanting the story to end, but knowing a new story waits ahead to be found–

as sure as the phases of the moon this wanning

summer will soon


straight into bright leaves and pumpkin pie–

kids planning costumes and chatting of school events, camp fires,  short days with longer nights–

apples as common as yellow leaves stew on oven tops sharing their sweet smell–

breeze breeze come again

while I sit under this changing tree

breeze breeze I love your touch

like the soft touch of the fabric LOVE

I am yours today

My book and me

I will stay as long as you breeze

Strangest things happen in the afternoon–

alone–thinking–being by myself–

Stillness,  so often covered by the sounds of modern life–

life of the everyday–

Deep breaths comfort me–trees blow in the breeze and save me–

I am back where I belong–

 Autum is reaching out–arms length away, but heading towards as fast as I can blink

summer to fall to winter to spring

the seasons of life–

the seasons of me–

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.
