I’m learning courage, and how to be brave… at all but 43 years old, I have much to learn.
I’m not good at the whole being brave thing. I’d rather stick my head in the sand blissfully than to stick it out courageously. Most days, I’d rather hide within these walls with these four I love the most and just be. For years, I blissfully lived this way… until, a stirring began and flamed into a fire in my heart. A fire to be a writer.

I listen to Ann… the one who has inspired me much. She tells me to get out of my comfort zone…. because when you have experienced Grace, you cannot not tell.
I read, I listen, I hear, I see… and, yet… I fear the giants…
