“Thoughts, many thoughts, random thoughts, thoughts about what I’ve done, where I’ve been – thoughts occupy my mind and translate into letters upon letters, words upon words, sometimes saying nothing, sometimes saying it all.” Me
Hello and welcome to my blog, Words on a Limb. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved writing; loved the power of words, the way they can create mood, evoke emotion and transform thinking. Much the same is my love for art; the way a single stroke can dance playfully on a page or wither in sadness, depending on its tilt, its size, its colour. The combination of the two is where Words On A Limb emerge, where paint splatters onto neatly written words, giving them a certain edge, if you will.
When I’m not writing, I’m dedicated to my full-time teaching career (teaching Kindergarten this year) and being a mom to my beautiful children (do the math – that leaves me with…hmmm…13 minutes to write every night). I have many goals, some immediate (learning to blog; #html_is_hell!) and some longer term (continue to publish children’s picture-books). All of these are coming along just fine, I’m happy to say.
Words On A Limb is not a solo pursuit. Picture it as a café, where you meet like-minded friends, sometimes you bring a notebook with some thoughts you had, other times you just come to listen with an open mind. Please feel free to comment, send in your suggestions and even share your own words on a limb.
Thank you for your time,
