Adding a dash of ‘extra’ to my less than ‘ordinary’ life.
Addicted to life and it’s emotions. Passionate about everything that ignites my soul. My only best friend and enemy is me. Bringing the spice to my own yard.
Being as positive as possible when possible. Always looking for the lesson in every challenge that life gifts me, is a constant in my life. Doing things differently to make the mundane more interesting and stay in love with life.
I have a brilliant little human being in my life, my daughter Cameron, She is truly a blessing and has re-opened my eyes to see a more colourful world. She has reminded me to learn to appreciate everything and everyone around me and to take care not to take it for granted. Stop to smell the proverbial roses, so to speak.
Cameron holds such a special place in my heart, not only because she is my daughter, but because she is a free spirit with a personality and sense of humour which outshines many people my age.
My writing addiction
I started writing the old fashioned way, with pen and paper, 2 days before 9/11, writing poetry, journaling about my travels and thoughts on life experiences.
The very first journal I bought had Salvador Dali’s (who happens to be my favourite artist) famous “Melting Clocks” on the cover. This is my inspiration for using the Melting Clocks as the theme image for this blog. This is also very apt as every time I write, time is not a factor, clocks melt.
I’d like to think that having bought this specific journal is a another way of saying that I went into a store and bought me some time.
My music addiction
A day without music is like a day without sunshine, food and water.
My first boyfriend introduced me to the world that is music in 1994. He worked in the music industry and helped me grow my music collection with a plethora of all genres, from classical to dance to pop to rock to indie to metal.
Why stick with one genre and limit your emotions from experiencing the ecstasy that is music. Every musician puts their heart and soul into their music and the piece of their soul that they pour into their music finds a new home in my heart, my life and my soul.
Thank you for being curious and taking the time to find out more about me.
I look forward to getting to know more about you. I would love to hear about your experiences, passions, dreams.
