About me

Hello & welcome.

I live my life pretty unfiltered and so hope that authenticity translates onto these virtual scribblings. Quite frankly, it is a smidge terrifying to crack open one’s soul to the masses, but I am nothing if not determined.

A few of my favorite things…

My doodles. Another outlet for the creativity that seems to burst out of me sometimes.

…and this…

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson

This is {everything}.

I find that I express myself much better through text, so this blog is, in essence, my journal. My thoughts, musings, soul searching… growth!! I began this blog as an outlet to process my grief following the death of my father. I did not anticipate my own self-discovery; or the depth of insight and understanding that I would gain into his life.

Even though he is gone, I feel closer to him now. The knowledge I’ve gained about him, about me, is invaluable to me; and I feel as though I am only scratching the surface. His Asperger’s enlightened me to my own presence on the spectrum. My quirks and idiosyncrasies mimic his in so many ways. Different, yet the same. I am encouraged to push on, to delve deeper, and to learn more.

Feel free to join me on this journey, or stop by when it suits you. I’ll be here…trying to figure it all out

  1. You write so beautifully. It’s easy to see that comes from your heart. Marianne Williamson’s verses fit where I am so perfectly. It’s nice to know that there are others with similar feelings. Thanks.
