Listening to Nora Jones makes me happy….it’s settles any kind of “dis-ease” I have been carrying for the day….

I once saw her in concert at the Hollywood Bowl…Jack was only 3 months old, if that.   We swaddled him up on a cool October night and strolled over to the Bowl and ……DANCED.  I danced, he slept to her beautiful voice…beautiful music and storytelling….GOOD TIMES…


I listen tonight and am catapulted back to the past of days gone by… only in my thoughts…my ‘memory”…reality then…but past now….


How is that…our NOW is NOW and as soon as I say it it is past…..My future is future ONLY because I THINK it….


Now that’s something…


Something to THINK about….



We ARE what we THINK….


No matter how we try to frame our reality…..Past is PAST…FUTURE is FUTURE…and NOW IS NOW…..


I am currently working on this….’Living in the NOW”……

I have been working on this a LONNNNNGGGGG time….and am recently getting comfortable with the idea of what NOW is….


It’s ….

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.
