About me

Occupation Stay at Home Mom, Writer
Location Austin, Texas, United States
Introduction I love Shakespeare but I "heart" T.S. Eliot. I think Jane Austen is brilliant. My favorite paintings have words in them. And I think food is an art form. I have strong opinions, nagging insecurities, and friends I count as fearless advocates. I serve the God of Love* and I seek to be more like Him. I fail much more than I succeed but I keep trying anyway. I short, I am your mother, brother, sister, friend. In me is you; in you is me; and yes, thank God, I Am. *1 John 4: 8-9
