Mission Statement

With pen and I paper,
I aspire to paint portraits
with words that find color
in a black and white world

I value each hue that brings
new perspective to thoughts
we may share and understanding
to ideas not yet considered

While wandering in a place
of my own creation, I invite
each reader to come along
and teach me, to show me how

to see with new eyes
to feel with an open heart
to understand with a clear mind
to create with connection and purpose

  1. Love your writing and your way with words!! I mean come on? How dead on and funny is – Ninja Cats? I’m still laughing! A perfect description of a cat calmly lying on the couch and then jumping up and racing to the other room like a dog is chasing them! Well, in your case that could actually be true – yes?

    Looking forward to following you!!!

  2. Hi Michelle,

    How are you doing? I have been searching my emails for your interview today and I cannot find it. I know I had it as I emailed you back that I received it but somewhere it’s been lost. I’m very sorry about this but do you have a copy of the email in your sent folder, you could resend to me so I can put it together this week?

    Thanks and sorry again,

    Amanda mandi_ae@hotmail.com

  4. Trust the process! Thank you, I lost that one over the years and it will come in handy. I have a posting that I have to write – process would rationalize the “have to” component. The only I can think of making this fun is if I turn it into a two parter. Maybe throw in a Linda Evans/Joan Collins from Dynasty catfight picture just, well just because it popped into my mind, oddly enough. Thanks for your invisible support, you remind me of when I would turn the dial on a transistor radio, and it would be static, and then I’d find music. The song that comes to mind is Misty Blue by Dorothy Moore….IPOD and stargazing time, thanks for your creative transmissions. Signal received.
