You wanna know what I am?
I'm a super-heroine!
OK. It's true. I don't actually do battle with anything outside my own head. But that's pretty revolutionary if you think about it. You see, I have certain qualities that enable me to break through the mental conditioning that's imposed on us by society...qualities most people have had "educated" out of them.
I've learned to hear the silenced voices of Nature. And I'll tell you what. It was exactly the same as FINALLY learning to hear my own poor stifled voice. Seriously.
I was invisible. Ignored. Dismissed. Treated like a pile of garbage. And look at me now! A published author!
I bet you could become your Real Self too. Read my books for a bit of inspiration, then connect with me on Facebook. We'll talk!
A darkly whimsical study in anger and forgiveness, “Killing Joe Sabazius” tells the unlikely love story of a guilt-wracked murderess, the spirit of her dead rapist and his newly reincarnated self, a magical crow, and a dirty cop… while the natural wisdom of the sullied but indomitable Chicago River sparkles through on every page.
A playful, sensual modern homage to “The Thunder, Perfect Mind,” this long narrative poem is the Voice of the Great Goddess in Her heartbroken, polluted urban river aspect. Calliope Braintree’s loving tribute to the Chicago River, this poem gives voice to the passion, plight, and ultimate triumph of nature.
