April 24th 2015…Happy Birthday JACKER’S

Everything in my life

…happens so fast..


Today is Jack’s 11th birthday, (I say today), but I am hours late…hours late because everything in “my life happens so fast”… that I find myself sitting here at 1:30 a.m. in the morning the night of Jack’s birthday…April 24, 2015 which suddenly, when my eyes popped opened five minutes ago I found it was April 25, 2015…and all I heard in my head ……as the house lay silent after a wonderful, hectic, wii filled, present opening, music blearing, food festive, fire blazing, kids playing, parents talking, “happy birthday Jack”… party….was “my life happens so fast, I didn’t have a chance to post!”

….my life happens so fast…”we didn’t talk to the Toads!”

…my life happens so fast, “I feel asleep once again (with Tatum) and didn’t say good night to last of my friends”

…my life happens so fast, “I didn’t…..” 

There is so much truth in this state….

“My life happens so fast” I can only let go of the resistance to change it and release to floating down the lazy river of life…which isn’t so lazy, but all the same an enveloping cloak of warm security with the knowing-ness that this is the way it should be…

“the way this is”…

Life is fast…

my life is fast…

I can’t  begin…

on this silent night at 1:30 a.m. in the morning with the house so quiet I feel like I am in the twilight zone with eyes half shut hearing nothing but sugar plum dreams of a GREAT DAY…

to find the words…


“My life happens so fast…”



WHO just turned ELEVEN YEARS OLD!!!! today, (HA..Yesterday)

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.
