for so many reasons
others because I feel dramatic
I write because of a burning desire, a need to be heard despite my voice being oh so unreliable. An interesting mix of shyness and confidence, my voice: my writing is my best voice.
because so many stories
others more dramatic
I write because I need to work through the details, the emotions, the complexities of life: past and present and future.
Turning names, dates, documents into narratives. Tracing a line – a thread – through time; connecting then with now: drawing conclusions and asking questions. Discovering me.
Turning classroom antics and personal tragedies into something I can hold on to, even when my heart is bursting: with laughter or with sorrow. Embracing my place.
Turning plans, dreams, hopes, aspirations into something tangible. Exploration of the possible, testing the probable; being content with change. Becoming my destiny.
