"If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it." - Anais Nin "I write to taste life twice"--Anais Nin I am a wife, mother, educator, advocate who might occasionally--ok, more oft than not-- feel too much, think too much, cuss too much, over analyze, over-react, overly sensitive--but I don't know any other way to be--that's just me. If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
