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.

For me it isn’t just the music style, it’s about the words and flow and feeling

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.
