Life is ridiculous, and my life is no exception. It helps to remember all of my crazy thoughts and experiences through writing. Mostly, I write poetry. There is something about the idea being stripped down to the naked essentials; this challenge of attaching the concrete to the abstract that I can’t resist.

I also have a strong dependency on nature. Needless to say, I don’t do well after long spurts of hibernating. You will find me in the wild in the worst of conditions and you will find the wild in my best pieces.  My passion for nature has to do with an obsession with truth. The wild truth. I analyze every aspect of my life; sometimes I can overdo it, and I take full responsibility for the ugly and resplendent all of that creates. Over the years I’ve learned that truth is a difficult endeavor.

Thank you for checking out my blog and my work. Please feel free to give honest critique and feedback. Also, take a moment to introduce yourself and tell me about your work. I’m always searching for more good reads.

    • I personally like the idea of the virtual fist-bump although at times I can be quite wistful too. We might have to trade off. Thanks so much for following my blog. It’s nice to meet you and read real words from the other virtual side.

      • Trading-off is a-ok with me. Amongst the weaponry in my arsenal are: smirks, sly smiles, pointed stares, and the occasional knowing wink. Feel free to appropriate whichever you need, at any time. (8^)>
        Lovely to meet you as well…

    • Wuji, explaining my life would require a long memoir. It would not fit here in this little reply box. I’ve had many wonderful and painful experiences that have formed me. Abuse, poverty, marriage, betrayal, and love, along with many more surprises. One that recently weighs heavy on me is my 16 year old daughter with Down’s Syndrome was in a traumatic car accident with my ex last May, leaving her paralyzed. Hopefully, someday I can explain and understand all of these experiences in my writing. I only know it is my only outlet. Thank you for following my blog and your kind words of encouragement.

      • That is intense Stacie, I guess even in tragedy we evolve and learn and grow as artists of our lives. I’ve had my share of poverty, peculiar experiences living in India for many years, separation, betrayal, alienation and meditation along the way as well. Poets have deeper lows and more surreal highs, and in our vulnerability we feel life more deeply and sweetly.

    • Thank you and welcome! I am looking forward to reading more of your work as well. After I read about you, I felt immediately kindred. Although I’m not an eternal optimist,I am usually a positive person, I also teach high school English, have 3 children (4 if you take into consideration my boyfriend), and I know how it feels to be invisible.
