To build a life as a good and happy mom, I am constantly returning to the basics of what it takes to be a good and happy person. Love, being in the moment, gratitude, laughing at ourselves, occupying our bodies and lives like we mean it.
I live with my awesome husband and two boys in Madison, Wisconsin. I write for me and also for you. If you read something here that makes you laugh, cry, think, or feel mighty, then we’ve done it: you found me, I found you. We win.
Being an artist requires a commitment, and artistry is made easier by actually making art. Some day I hope the term “starving artist” will be a remnant of times past. It’s more common these days that we are the ones who starve our inner artists. That needs to stop. I like feeding my artistry. It is my personal goal to have full funding for a creative lifestyle and to pursue all of my arts unabashedly, while living and having a blast with my kick-ass family and friends.
One of the pages on this site includes my favorite quotes. I adore words and hope you take a look at the amazing wisdom and humor others have shared. Here’s one of my all-time favorites because his words are a mirror to my own thoughts every day:
”I want to thank anyone who spends a part of their day creating. I don’t care if it’s a book, a film, a painting, a dance, a piece of theater, a piece of music. Anybody who spends part of their day sharing their experience with us. I think this world would be unlivable without art.” – Stephen Soderbergh
Thanks to the readers, the writers, the quilters, the tap-dancers, the painters, the singers.. thanks to the the ones strumming guitar in their basement, the ones inventing new haircuts, and to the ones making up their own card tricks. We are all artists creating and it is so powerful. Thanks to my friends and family. I am spoiled beyond belief and I love it.
