About Me

20121031-055843.jpg

Love.Sparks.Art is a fun way of trying to capture all that we are in one title. If you read through even a few articles, you will find that our family is steeped in Love. There is enough creativity around here to fuel an actual rocket ship – so Sparks. And Art is infused into everything we do. We are a country-living family, with loud boys, big dreams, engines, gears, race cars, cardboard builds and poetry to wrap it all up neatly.

What is true and real and continuous in my life, is that I need to write. I need to put pen to paper, and let my thoughts untangle themselves on the page. Beauty is at the core, and I find myself mystified by it, if I allow myself to get there – through words and phrases, and sharing my heart.

When the boys were younger, we did themed nights for learning. We’ve done Language & Literature Mondays, Math Tuesdays, Art & Music Wednesdays, Science Thursdays and History & Geography Fridays. As they get older, we are more sporadic.

Thank you for being in my world. I appreciate your feedback and your gentle reading of my thoughts.

      Thank you. I love how well that photo captures the essence of my boys. Crazy, poetic, thoughtful, and wild.

      I thought the very same thing about your writing, the moment I read a poem of yours. Mutual Admiration Society, I believe! Whether we are writing poetry, or simply seeing the world through our poetic lenses…
