My emotions
run ragged.
All I want
is to
cut myself
off
from the noise.

De-
compress
Re-
Charge
have
Re-
spite
and
Re-
tire
all that
should be
left behind
or returned to
from whence
it came.

All I need
sometimes
is
quiet solitude.

A Short Bio
An empath with newly discovered passion for writing. I find writing helps me release emotions that I carry, sometimes they are not even my own emotions, an emotional sponge so to speak. Creativity is where I find balance and release. I’m a long time photographer, mostly nature and travel photography and have recently started painting as well. I am in my renaissance, metamorphic stage or mother to crone transition in life.
I have a personal blog which contains some of my writing and photography.
