I’m so appreciative that you shared your interpretation, Karde! I intended beach glass to represent the (often violent) process of changing something broken and imperfect into something beautiful. Having transformed my life in recent years, I wrote it with my own “bumps and battles” in mind:).
I feel more famous than that time the local news crew interviewed me following a screening of Batman Forever in 1995. I believe my quote was, “Robin is so BUFF!”
So anyway — this is way better than that:). Thanks for including me in a list of such bright, brave, and real women. A true honor from a special publication!
I still feel like a new mother, Kathryn! And mine is 3 1/2:). It can be so easy to lose focus in the day-to-day — to have this sense of urgency about “What’s next? What’s next?”. But then I look at my son savoring everything about the NOW and I think, “This kid is on to something!”:) Thanks for reading!
