Tears for fears….


There is a comfort that comes when you finally give in…

It dwells, then hides , then suddenly appears….

And all though you might fight like a thief in the night….

you were never strong enough, never able…

 never having a way out..


you give in….

 It comes from the gut…

the heart…

the mind….

you decide…..

YES it burns, burns just enough to know it’s there and just enough to remind you  of the


 you started in the first place…

All of a sudden you break…

Like a soft piece of play-dough lying in the sun

You want to melt, but can’t….

Your ingredients are not made up of such elements…

Instead you boil…

The water falls from you eyes always  as human salt…

mixed in with

contemplative thoughts of moments in between….

They fall…..you feel….

All along you have these tears…

Falling out of your soul…your eyes…your….



yes,  it burns…



it hurts…

but not bad enough….

Not enough to stop

so you keep on…













as if by magic 



In an instant you are complete…


And all sewn up by the word


with delicate threads of gold…

No longer the shattered china doll in the cabinet

all your pieces  are glued back together

in a blink….


The act of crying is never short of sad


always full of  childhood dreams……

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.
