Hmmm well, I am your classic hopeless, hapless romantic turned thorough cynic.
There are those who swear I am as charming as a spider ready to catch a fly and others who find me just bloody charming! I am more than the sum of other people’s words, I speak truth when I can and lie when I have to. I am hopelessly flawed and equally strange but, on a good day I can be sweet and up for most anything – provided, I will be able to keep my neck! There to buck you up when you are down and bring you down when you’re up. I am your girl about town your own little Puck.
I wrote the biography above 10 years ago, I suppose some things have changed others haven’t. You be the judge. Joni Mitchell re-recorded her greatest hits 11 years ago, she marveled at her own hubris. “I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now… I really don’t know clouds at all” Gravitas at 50, just a haughty pronouncement at 26.
The hope is that this blog introduces you to me. Perhaps someday I too will re-read my words and find them (not shockingly) in an age of instant gratification, reality TV stardom, and pop psychology/philosophy run amuck, a futile attempt to sound thoughtful. Perhaps, with some luck, I will read it and see my own evolution. Dear God, I pray the latter to be true, for ’tis a sad fate to leave this world unchanged, unrealized, un-forged – beautifully, painfully blank.
For now I live my life – always, with this in mind, “Go confidently in the directions of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined” – Henry David Thoreau.
