An About page on a personal site seems kinda redundant, doesn’t it? I was thinking of that as I put it together. I was also thinking how a few years ago, I wouldn’t have wanted to put any of this up. Why? Because I’m a creative, an artist, and we creative types have a hard time talking about ourselves and tooting our own horns.
Little by little over the years, I’ve come out of my crab shell (yes, I’m a July baby). I made a point to get out from behind the monitor and into the world. Spurred on by Shonda Rhymes’ The Year of Yes, I said “Yes!” to a lot of things; yes to hosting workshops at the Green Valley Library, yes to going to more conferences, yes to joining writing groups (served as Webmaster 2017-2019, and Exec. Assist. to the President 2018-2019 for the Henderson Writers Group here in Las Vegas), yes to book shows and signings, yes to…ENJOYING LIFE!
It’s made a huge difference. You should try it. I dare you.
I’ve learned that it’s okay to shout from the rooftops once in a while. Good things happen. Invite others up to the party. We have fireworks, music, movies, storytelling galore.
And cookies. Lots of them.
So, come on up. There’s beverages in the cooler, lounge chairs, a pool (hey, why not? It’s my world). Explore the site and enjoy, I’m glad to have you here.
