Just what the world needed: Another blog. And yet, I had to do it.
Because I believe in the power of words to not only reflect particular realities and share them broadly (the Blogspel Truth?), but also to change or rediscover our experiences, hopefully elevate them. (Maybe monetize them?)
I am never content with tepid, bottled content.
Both the practical and the romantic uses of language are of equal relevance to me: I have tried to divide them – passionate Hydrogen (life) from practical Oxygen (making a living) – but keep finding them together, as nourishing water, underground.
That’s why poetry lives here, neighboring my work portfolio, and why political observations and professional advice share space with musings on motherhood and pop culture – – why my business and my life are all sloshing around in adjacent buckets.
Who Are You? Who Are You?
Actually, I am a:
- Freelance copywriter, editor, journalist, blogger, and web content / marcom consultant
- mother of four
- wife to one and only
- community activist
I seem to enjoy the clichéd angst of being creative in highly conformist suburbia, because I not only stay put, but frequently bake for neighbors.
