About Me

I am terrible at responding to ratings, but please know that I cherish every rating and that I take feedback very seriously! Thanks to everyone who has given me such amazing thoughtful ratings!

Profile Updated 18-08-2018

I am a writer chipping away at the huge block of imagination in my mind, and sometimes the chips fall in a beautiful swirl, softly dancing in the breeze and sometimes they fall to the ground with a thud, devoid of grace. I am a poet who devours words and loves rearranging them into biting pieces, sometimes I strike, sometimes I nibble, all out of love. I am an artist who can’t draw any other way, who can’t create like others, but who always must follow her own path.

I am struggling with depression, the other rock lodged in my mind that has to occasionally feel the wrath of my pen. Some days are good and sometimes even bright, most days are a struggle. I believe in medication and therapy and in dealing with what life has dealt me. I do not believe every card I have in my deck was given to me fairly: twelve years of bullying has left me with C-PTSD and a complicated way of seeing myself. I am insecure and have a soft heart, but I am working on making that my strength, instead of a weakness. My Fibromyalgia is something I fight with, when I should be accepting. Learning when to fight and when to rest is my goal.

I am full of mopey wizards, lonely towers, super novas and comic book tragedy. Villains usually don't live long, or when they do, their inevitable redemption is ret-conned into uselessness. I used to be green-haired, but after ten years switched to purple. I am getting old.

I volunteer for a foundation that provides into society for youths who have problems due to addiction, disability, trauma or a mix of those. I write and create and do administrative duties.

I am a Christian. I believe in Gods love for all people and I am supportive of rights and respect for the LGBTQ community.

I love cats and my Loki is my true love. He's an extremely stubborn Norwegian Forest Cat who pretends he's a bad boy but can't hide being a sweetheart.

Comment: What a unique inspiration. With your eloquent descriptions and examples (never thought of the princess rescue in that context), I see why and how towers would spark creativity. Also enjoyed the poem you wrote.

I love both of the self-portrait ATCs you made for the "...Favorite Theme" tag! It was so clever of you to use different hairstyles but compatible elements to create the set. Your kitty is beautiful! He's super cute in your profile pics and made a darling addition to this project. I truly appreciate the effort you put into making these. Wonderful job! Thank you so much!

KingCarmen on Feb 25, 2019:

Thank you very much for your lovely dragon drawing for the Draw Me A... tag! Really like the colours! <3

Hello friend ! It’s been so long since I’ve been around ! I still have your photo here in my home office 👍 Thinking of you and sending good vibes 💜 Hugs Cher Ms Rose

I want to thank you again for the happy birthday mail you sent Kendra. She opened it all early and loved the ATCs you sent---and the kawaii envelopes (which we're going to try and find some sort of frames for so they can hang on her wall).

breethefrog on Aug 28, 2018:

I received your lovely package of writing today! I haven't made it through all of it, but I look forward to having a cup of tea and reading stories! I love the poem "Question." There is great imagery in it, and the way you broke the lines, it feels very much like e. e. cummings wrote it. Thank you for sharing with me!
