I just want to take a moment and thank those of you who are reading. I’ve gotten some really positive feedback on my writing, and that means the world to me.
I’ve never wanted to be anything but a writer.
Except when I wanted to be a theater actress, a rock star, a grief counselor, or a hockey player.
But I love to string words together like beads, fumbling for the right combination, when the words fit together just right and spark a current. When they glow.
I struggle all across my life with the old not good enough tapes, so deep and ancient they are nestled in my bones. I am digging to remove the tapes, but it is surgery, deep and painful and bloody. So it means the world to hear that my words are working, they are shining something to you, connecting us like beads, like glowing words.
