Ayn of 1000 Days...


I am many things... An imaginative over thinker...

artist excited by possibilities, new beginnings,

organized mind with a creative heart.


Avid seeker of truth and character in humanity.  

Star trek girl livin' in a material world.  

Believer, that #humanityisfamily.  

An only child who knows she has seven plus billion brother and sisters (hi y'all!)

But above all else...I'm a human being, who was born on this third planet that goes around that star every 365 days...

I do my best to be kind (doesn't always happen), seek out knowledge (always learning, will never stop), exploring my self and my world.  I label my self as woman, considered caucasian with ancestral roots through Ireland (close to 50%), Scotland, England, France, Germany and the Netherlands (thanks to Pennsylvania Dutch ancestors who came to this land before it was a nation) and I was born in this land now called the United States of America in the last quarter of the 20th century.  My parents were both artists of middle and lower middle class roots.  Growing up was an adventure of moving thirty times before my eighteenth birthday. 

I am a grass roots philosopher, storyteller by trade seeking out new worlds and discovering my humanity along the way.

This is my journey.  An artist at half life in the 21st century.  Welcome...

The hardest part about sharing my story is being seen.  Both sides, the desire to know I’m not alone and the fear of being misunderstood.  This is my story, my first decade of #metoo.

Earliest - all I remember is I was really little and sleeping in a dark room and a man who was familiar came into the room and talked to me.  I don’t know what happene...

We girls are full of possibilities, 

imagined worlds of grown up lives

Before the taint of reality 

tears us away from rose tinted lies

We see families, communities grow, 

Together building tomorrow

Possibilities abound

Reality puts asunder

We play with our friends no matter race or color, 

before society changes

The color of our rose colored glasses 

to shades of...

This blog was going to wait.

Until there was more content, more of me in the words, more shared, more ready to explore.

But then Oprah spoke last night at the Golden Globes and this can't wait...

This is my truth.

It was meant for release at the spring equinox and for a better rollout.

It will grow, yes... but not attached to time just when I'm ready to share.

I think the hardest thing about being creative is completion.  It's always been a hang up for me.  Sometimes the pursuit of the idea is all that matters, never the outcome.  Because the outcome is never guaranteed...  Living a creative life is a choice.  It takes the big three...time, energy and money.  But the beauty of a creative life is it doesn't matter...
