My educational background beyond the traditional, public schools includes an Associate of Mechanical Drafting and a Bachelor of Psychology. After being a numbers person for half my life, unfortunate circumstances put me on a fine arts path.
Who is Andrea Yates?
My favorite true crime event is the drowning of five children by their mother, Andrea Yates. This occurrence is favored by me over other stories because it provides a shocking realization that the mental health system failed Andrea and her family. The system failed because it was incapable of helping her to accept that she was living with mental illness. Recovery was determined by her ability to perform activities of daily living, which is inadequate and subservient to the ability of a person to accept that they are living with a psychological disability. Therefore, it was irresponsible for her to have been discharged from the hospital when she was.
Called into the Depths
I stared at the mesmerizing picture that was hanging in a store at the Nittany Mall in State College, Pennsylvania. A scene of storm-churned ocean waves crashing into the rocky cliffs that a lighthouse stood upon. I didn't know then that it was a call into the depths of my being. I didn't know, those twenty-six years ago, that it was the beginning of the consequences of a missed lover's kiss that sunk me into the deep, dark sea and tossed me about by this ebb and that flow for a lifetime.
A Passion for Fiction Writing
Out of all of my interests, I'm the most passionate about writing fictional stories. It took a blessing in disguise for me to discover this passion. First, people follow me and want to read my stories because they contain well-rounded characters, truth-ringing themes, believable conflict, and an inspiring story that motivates people to accomplish goals and achieve dreams. Next, people should support my passion because I am more than fiction stories. I am a survivor of both workplace and psychiatric ward drama. Finally, I can monetize from my passion for writing by blogging a book with the help of membership business software.
Songs of Hope in a Desolate Tomb
A short, calm run a dog and I went on. It was neither our first nor the last. The air was dry and warm that summer dawn.
Of Heartbreak and Horror
Some fear zombie apocalypse. Others a nuclear war. Yet from a dimension beyond, there are legions of horror. Awaiting the breaking down of the door.
Fulfillment in Following Judicial Cases
I'm most passionate about bringing knowledge and understanding involving the American justice system, law, and the cases brought before it to the public. Following court cases brings me true fulfillment, and people follow me because I create discourse around justice instead of politics. I can monetize from my passion by integrating my articles with membership business software. In addition to content about what is happening with and in the judicial system, my followers will receive a free digital copy of commonly used legal terms and a diagram of the court tiers.
Happy Birthday Gemini
As the sun makes its solar return to Gemini, it brings with it blessings in disguise. Hold tight to your wits and dreams during this time. Although the disguise could be devastating - hold the line, for your experience is going to be recognized and used for others' support and guidance. Going with the flow makes maneuvering changes both inner and outer seem like a colorful, fall leaf floating down to the gentle stream below. Everything you lose during this foundation-shaking time will pale in comparison to the blessings received. If you learn upon your curiosity and dominant yang energy, you will gain that which gives power.
In Celebration of My Leading Lady
The most significant lesson I learned from my mom was to not rely on my ex-fiance to be responsible and dependable. Instead of accepting my mom's generosity to remain in her home, after graduating from a technical institute, I moved in with my boyfriend at his mother's house. I regret this choice. Yet, I needed to learn to care for myself. It wasn't too long after this choice that I burned out driving forty minutes to work one way. After a brief stint in Hollywood, Florida, I made my way to Tucson, Arizona where my mom allowed me to live with her, again.
