My Reflection

My beautiful friend forwarded this video, saying "...this is a perfect reflection of your inner child..."
Talk about opening up my heart and putting a huge, silly grin on my face.
And she's right...so time to let that inner child play. Get up and show your true self!


I'm definitely wearing purple tights, Mary Jane's and letting my wild curls free as I bust a move to a hip-shaking groove.

what's your reflection?

Share the love

Window Lego display on NW Glisan

Oh Portland. 
Thank you for the reminder that it's not (always) necessary 
to go big, break-the-bank, over-the-top. 
Most times it's the little things that spread sunshine and smiles. 
Happy Valentine's Day, Portland, all year long.




give a little love with your heart,

I want to be a writer

every wish, one dream

Every dandelion blown
each Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight. 

My wish is always the same.

Every fallen eyelash
and first firefly of summer . . .

The dream remains.

What did you wish for?
To be a writer.

Every heads-up penny found
and daydream and night dream
and even when people say it's a pipe dream . . . !

I want to be a writer.

--excerpt from brown girl dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

A brown girl 
with the same dream.

No way!
it may seem,
but the fire
inside
will always burn.
So pen to paper,
continue to learn.

Blow out the candle,
my wish is made.
Let go, believe.
To God I've prayed:

I want to be a writer.
