I try super hard at these things: love, being in the moment, gratitude, laughing at the ridiculousness and beauty of everything, occupying my body and life like I mean it.
I live with my awesome husband and 3 kids in Madison, Wisconsin. I write for me and also for you. If you read something here that makes you laugh, cry, giggle, think, or feel mighty, then I consider that a victory for us both.
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.
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.
