Highway to Heaven

Her mind wanders

Void of certainty

Imprisoned and incurious.

Memory blurred

Thoughts often fade to black

Stories end with no beginning.

Moments passed come again…

…and again…

…and again.

Voices of strangers

And unfamiliar faces calling

Her name still draws attention.

Intoxicating juices induced

Blank stares with no contact

Motions without movement.

Strength trapped

Knowledge lost to time

Impuissant body and mind.

Set free

New story begins

With no ending.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
