I am a seasoned hospitality professional and aspiring writer. I especially love poetry and experimenting with different styles. My inspiration comes from personal life events and I am known to root for the "underdog." I am 49 years young.
I shall ask one question you must ponder How can sunsets cause sight to become blurred? Morrow's sunrise offers you fresh wonder
To Pick an Oxeye Daisy
May you always recall the day we met Mid month in June; my skies were so hazy Of all flowers blooming, you could beget You only saw me; an oxeye daisy

80's Playlist of a Teenage Underdog

I Am Ready for the Revival of Modern Subculture in 2021
I was born in 1971 and from early childhood I developed a love for fashion. Having a talented Mum who could sew taught me as a little girl about creativity and the importance of owning my individuality. Looking at old photographs of her in the United Kingdom made me appreciate different styles and patterns. Rummaging through her closet to run my little fingers across the fabric of classic pieces she saved, inspired a sweet nostalgia in me for a decade which although before my time was my earliest inspiration in fashion. The era of Modernist Subculture struck a fancy in me and I am ready for its revival today in 2021.
Learning To Appreciate Creative Differences
Gia slipped into her English class at the tail end of the final bell hoping to go undetected but her five foot eleven posture towered over the majority of her classmates. Her jet black pixie cut and ice blue eyes intensified her presence along with her unique flare for fashion. She scurried along to her assigned seat; four rows in and third desk back with her head held down dressed in a Naruto t shirt displaying her love for anime. The ruffles of her flowy black skirt, one of her personal designs swung off her slim frame like a top model walking the runway. Her retro combat boots gave her look some confidence yet in reality she was uncomfortable in social settings always feeling out of place and alone. Flopping down onto the hard metal chair, she closed her eyes hoping and praying that perhaps this would finally be the day she would catch a lucky break…
Romancing the Railway
Esme boarded Amtrak’s Ethan Allen Express in Albany bound for New York City. She gave her face mask a gentle tug at the bottom to adjust its fitting and seated herself at quaint spot on the right hand side for optimal viewing from the passenger window. She withdrew her boarding ticket from her handbag for the conductor making his rounds letting out a disappointed sigh when she heard the dining cart was closed for her trip estimated at 2 hours and 41 minutes. Amtrak was operating only at 50% capacity due to Covid 19 and all the empty seats surrounding her reminded her of not only how isolated the world had become, but of her time in seclusion without a companion. A glass of merlot from her Bright Cellars Wine collection seemed like the perfect solution to her at that moment but knowing she would have to just make do, she shrugged her shoulders and turned her attention to the world outside the window. A couple of blackbirds resting on the track platform caught her attention forcing her to chuckle as “little blackbird” is another name for merlot.
A Four Legged Find at the Discount Store
Everyone loves a bargain when they are shopping. I have been frequenting the local discount store just minutes from my home for years now. This large two level store conveniently located in downtown Albany, N.Y. offers quite an array of items from cleaning & household products, cosmetics, jewelry & hair care, a modest clothing section, accessories to odds n ends; even furniture & carpeting on the second floor. It is a practical one stop shop with just about everything you will ever need under one roof; a definite bang for your bank type of deal. I always find what I need along with neat surprises as the store is always updating with new items.
