“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”

— Maya Angelou

I’ve always written as a way to process my thoughts and feelings. As I study memoir writing, and practice it daily, I’m finding the more I write, the more I learn about myself. I’m uncovering my story essay by essay.

Every time I sit down to write I’m surprised by what ends up on the page. It’s almost always unexpected and very often enlightening. It’s turning into quite the journey!
