    When I read your comment on J Mraz post it was as if my thoughts were being transported into written words. I wish I could be that starving artist. I too am a wife and mom of boys. I am always trying to add art in our everyday. It’s refreshing to know that someone else is my world. Thanks.

    I came across your comments on Mraz’s blog post and had to write you. I don’t have children but I know exactly how you feel when you say “I love my life (wow) but it’s still not what I’d hoped for, expected, or even what I feel I’m called to be or do — not quite.” In so many ways it seems there are many of us who feel this way but go through each day thankful to still be here on this planet doing SOMETHING – living, loving, laughing.

    I am bookmarking you because I have a strong feeling you are going to be one of my favorite writers to read. I am also a writer but not as a career just yet. Blogging has given me an outlet to get over the scary factor of sharing my thoughts with the world & I hope the same happens for you!

torch bearing quietly

I will not act out, will not
yell or curse or slam doors,
will not make a scene -- you
do not deserve such a chance
to make an example out of me
to be proven right since you
are not. Instead, I'll stand
at this street corner, raise
my hand high and clench that
light which yet remains. It
will burn brightly, quietly,
fiercely before fading as I.

Then I'll be gone but found.
