Ft. Davis Butterfly - Jared Dunten
Welcome to my little sliver of the web-world. I'm so happy you're here.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm a forty-something year-old mother of two cherished children - Griffin and Hazel - a writer, marketer, podcaster, certified yoga instructor/energy healer, and co-curator of a messy and marvelous marriage. I love fiercely, live imperfectly, laugh hard and cry often.
I write because words are the way I experience the world. I'm awed by their power and do my best to wield them wisely, bringing truth home with kindness.
I see shades of gray everywhere in our black and white world and challenge myself to write (and live) from life's contradictory lessons; those with the capacity to unite instead of divide. This isn't to say I don't believe in justice, equality, freedom, and fighting for what's right - I do. Love can be righteous, redemptive and rowdy.
I'm grateful to all who've helped me on my life's journey. Your impact is forever carved on my soul. Writing-wise, I give thanks to high school English teachers who believed in me, a college TA who didn't , good grammar genes, writing coaches along and a group of wonderful world-wide women who write well, love better and are changing each other for good.
My writing can be found with the Austin American Statesman, The Huffington Post, Scary Mommy, among others. I'm currently working on a memoir and blog posts here.
