Follow Your Myth….


Some times instead of writing my own words….I write some one else’s….

Unfold your Own Myth

Who gets up  early to discover the moment light begins?

Who find us here circling, bewildered, like atoms?

Who comes to a spring thirsty and sees the moon reflected in it?

Who, like Jacob blind with grief and age, smells the shirt of his lost son and can see again?

Who lets a bucket down and brings up a flowing prophet?  Or like Moses goes for fire and finds what burns inside the sunrise?

Jesus slips into a house to escape enemies, and opens a door to the other world.

Solomon cuts open a fish, and there’s a gold ring.

Omar storms in to kill the prophet and leaves with blessings.

Chase a deer and end up everywhere!

An oyster opens his mouth to swallow one drop.

Now there’s a pearl.

A vagrant wanders empty ruins.

Suddenly he’s wealthy.

But don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others.  Unfold your won myth, without complicated explanation, so everyone will understand the passage, We have opened you.

Start walking toward Shams.  your legs will get heavy and tired.  Then comes a moment of feeling the wings you’ve grown, lifting.  —-Rumi

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.
