I do so many things: I’m a single mother; the owner and operator Write from the Heart; a freelance writer and producer; an adjunct instructor at a community college. But my goal is to not be defined by what I do, but who I am: a person trying to live in the world in a way that will matter. I don’t fit a lot of the time. And I’m not just a square peg … I feel like I’m hexagonal. I want to belong, but on my own terms, with all my sharp pointy bits celebrated, not just tolerated. What I’ve discovered, what I continue to discover, is that sometimes you just have to break out the hacksaw and make your own space. It might not be pretty, and it might not be smooth. But it’s my own. I don’t mind if I’m not easily defined….I don’t want to fit into all the pre-made slots or become complacent in my comfort. I want to be a hexagonal peg in a round-holed world.
