Tea with Chopin…..

Wondering today if Life is just a dream?


Is there any way that all of THIS is just my imagination?


Is there any way all of THIS is an illusion?


How do we know?

How can we be sure?

How does anyone know ANYTHING?


There are some circle’s of people who would say these questions are ridiculous and not worth pondering….other circles ponder them over wine and cheese, while others inside a synagogue, temple or church…perhaps while looking at the Grand Canyon for the first time during a late summer  sunset.

I know I go to bed at night and dream dreams that are so real I am shaken “back to reality” only by the the sound of ” beep beep….”

I know I look outside my window and see the wind blowing leaves around like I blow kisses to my children ….I listen to Chopin while sipping ethereal conjectures of bliss….

I know somehow my life is REAL…but I don’t know what makes it so….


Clouds above the tree line float by parallel

with the thoughts inside my head….

Is LFIE all but a DREAM?


Maybe only the wind knows….or maybe the kids…for their imaginations takes them everywhere….everywhere inside their 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.
