Truthiness: the art of telling stories about real life that are certainly true from my perspective.
What’s a story if not a little limber in it’s telling? I’ll take it.
When I was in college, my horoscope told me that I would be a “ballerina, bull-doze driver, trapeze artist.” I was a little bummed since I had planned on being a desert-princess-turned-bandit.
The truth is, I have always been a shape-shifter.
Business-woman, river guide, window-washer, waitress, Forest Service archeologist technician assistant, graduate student, backpacker, daughter, sister, vixen, nice Mormon girl, traveler and some day hope to be a true companion. But one of the best parts about being all these things and more – they all got good stories.
I grew up in small town golden green lovely rivers dancin’ wild and wonderful West Virginia and now live in cow slalom temple chanting vibrant chaos yummy caramel rural and riotous India on a wild adventure… which is good. I vowed I would never be bored in my own life!
Now, I write to shift the shape of the world. I hope the stories that bloom from the bliss ride of life are as delightful to read as they have been to create.
