I come from a family of artists, and crafters from both sides of my family. I will be forever grateful to my grandmother who taught me how to crochet. It has been healing for me. When I was growing up, my dream was to study art in Paris and have my paintings in art shows and galleries. This dream got me through some hard times and for me was as vital as the air that I breathe. I taught myself to paint and draw. When I was in high school, I would take every art course that I could and even entered some art shows where I won awards. I was a shy girl who didn’t make friends easily but art was a way for me to be me. During my junior year in high school, I entered a drawing contest and won. A man from the school came to meet me. By the time he left, I was enrolled in his art school. We didn’t have much money but my dad made sure that I was enrolled. So while going to high school during the day at night after my chores and homework were done I would work on my art school. This school was the Art Correspondence School from Minnesota where Charles Schultz also went to. After high school, I paid for art tutors and went to Art classes through a program at the high school. Then I finally started college to get my art degree. I loved my art classes but one of my professors would always harshly critique my work and I would always end up crying when leaving her room until one day when I had it and quit painting for good which was over 20 years ago. I wish I hadn’t quit my dream but I was so timid and shy that I didn’t know how to handle it. It was the end of one dream but the start of another dream.

"The Adventures of Ruby the Robin: A Heartwarming Tale of Friendship and Courage"
Once upon a time, in the heart of a lush, green forest, there lived a tiny robin named Ruby. With her vibrant red feathers that shimmered in the sunlight, Ruby was a sight to behold.

For anyone struggling right now, please remember, human beings are not equipped to deal with the bombardment of violent imagery on our news-screens. I cannot take in another broken child, a devastated family, a fragment of a lost life. I know I should be bearing witness. I know my pain is not equal to theirs.
How to be natural in life?
Eliza, with her perfectly coiffed hair and meticulously planned outfits, felt like a walking paradox. On the outside, she exuded an air of polished perfection, yet inside, a constant hum of self-consciousness thrummed like a faulty engine. She craved the authenticity she saw in others, the effortless ease with which they navigated life, seemingly unburdened by the need to impress.
