Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

mood swings & matrimonial profiles



Sometimes I am a writer, a storyteller, and the dreamer of dreams… 
and sometimes I am a builder of unblinking attention.

Some days I burn the oil, for midnights, daybreaks and twilights… 
and on some others, the crown jewels couldn’t drag a whisper from me.

Sometimes I am the sister, the friend who holds hands and dries tears… 
and sometimes I am the one who sheds them on the same beach.

But always, I am the aunt who loves her nephew fiercely. :-)

I am the one to curl around a book by the window sill… 
and also the one to brave storms and uprooted trees to keep at my work.

I am the delightful granddaughter, niece, and my father’s princess…
I am also the girl my mother wishes she never had. :-)

Strangely conservative, surprisingly liberal, cheerfully sociable, deeply private, jumps into rain puddles, walks on the night beach… razor sharp perception.

I am this and I am that,
but mostly I am just the plain-old-girl next door. :-)
