About Me

38, nurse, photographer, with 2 Kids in their teens. I have lived in the Seattle Area my whole life. My Dad is a Ret. Captain, USN, P3 Orion Pilot who did anti-submarine warfare, and also a meteorologist. My Mom was a teacher and passed away in 2011, she was a two time cancer survivor. My Dad is a policy Republican and my Mom was a Liberal. I had a VERY interesting childhood to say the least. I suffer from a rare disease called Chronic Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (google it sometime 🤪) and both Trigeminal and Occipital neuralgia. I started writing again to combat the isolation and loneliness that comes with an invisible, chronic and very painful condition (I look fine to everyone else). I count my blessings and I refuse to give up even though many day I do want to. I try to live like I have little time left, not a lifetime to come. I try to love all people the way they feel they deserve, not the way I think they deserve. My first love was ballet.

Favorite Music

Musicians whose music has inspired me: Sarah McLaughlin, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Diana Krall, Mariah Carey, Bach, Mozart, Puccini, Sarah Brightman, Josh Groban, Selena, Halsey, Barabars Streisand, Jewel, Bond, Yo Yo Ma (he is so amazing), Eddie Vedder, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Cindy Lauper, Ella Fitzgerald, Gladys Knight, Pavorati, Curt Cobain, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Jody Benson (Disney Ariel), Il Divo, Selena, Faith Hill, Johnny Cash, Shania Twain, Beach Boys, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, John Legend, Jon Lennon, Alicia Keys, so many more...... For me it isn’t just the music style, it’s about the words and flow and feeling

Favorite Books

Non Fiction True Crime (serial killers) or Medical Best Sellers Favorite books: A Few Sarah’s Key, Working Stiff, Flu, Starvation Heights, Gone Girl, Miss Perigreines, The Night Circus, Defending Gary, Stiff, Spooked, Angelology, A Discovery of Witches, Relapse, North By Northwestern,

Favorite Movies

Goonies, The Little Mermaid, The Notebook, When a Man Loves a Woman, Atonment, The Imitation Game, Harry Potter Series, The Hunger Games, The Frozen Ground, Indiana Jones movies, Star Wars,

Favorite Television

Deadliest Catch (never miss it) Criminal Minds, Ellen, How to Get Away with Murder, American Horror Story, Glee, Super Store, Dr. Phil, The Knick, Black Mirror, Mind Hunters, Jack Ryan, Project Runway Killing Fields, Monsters Inside Me, Mystery Diagnosis,

Favorite Crafts

Refinishing furniture and wooden items, Rock Painting, basic painting, DIY, coloring books, slime (with my daughter), card making, shadow boxing, upcycling

What inspires me

Real, human, stories, that’s what inspires me. I am generally interested in anyone who has something they want to share about themselves. Your strange coincidence, six degrees of separation, past and present colliding, I want those stories. Your triumphs and struggles and how you fight or overcame (because that matters). I have some of my own that I hope inspire others too. I also am inspired by sarcasm and life’s irony.

Comment: |Thank you for the words of dr. Suess. His books are translated in Dutch, but I must admit I never had heard about him.

Comment: Thanks for the wonderful Capricorn image and Greek mythology about the constellation. As a sea goat myself I especially appreciate it! I didn't know the part about Zeus transforming her broken horn into the cornucopia. Thanks for enlightening me,
