One of my earliest memories is of writing. Poems, little stories by a little girl... words were the best presents that I could give. I grew up writing poetry and participated in the Chicago poetry scene in my twenties. At that time I was also painting and testing the fit of my voice in longer writings.
I taught English in the public school system from some of Chicago's most challenging neighborhoods to those struggling economically in Phoenix. In both, it has been my privilege to witness the strength of humanity rising from adversity.
I'm drawn to issues of social alienation; loneliness; the search for purpose and meaning in life; the tug of right against wrong within us all; and the beauty that can be found in surviving the odds.
I believe is that there is probably a lot more to this world than we can comprehend and I feel that we need to question our concepts of truth and reality. It is a bit pompous to assume that we, the human race, know everything there is to know. In other words, it might be a good idea to consider the possibility that what we thought impossible is in fact, perhaps, probable.
