I’d like to take a moment to thank you for stopping by!
On this blog, you can expect to find the authentic poetry of a woman who has been through some things in life!
As some of you know, I am currently working to hold a marriage together after multiple miscarriages, infidelity on his part, and now a long prison sentence.
However, that is not all that I am about!
I am also a survivor of child abuse and neglect. I have suffered through multiple head traumas and have made a near full recovery. (I still live with chronic pain and memory loss). I take no medication for my pain unless the occasional Tylenol to sleep.
Though I do believe in God and practice a life of faith and love, I do not attend church for personal reasons as I am also a PSA survivor.
I began writing seriously when several of my closest friends and relatives passed away due to illness, accidents, suicides, and murders. My poetry became my way of coping. As I recovered from my brain injuries and began to walk without a cane, I found my passion for photography of, particularly nature!
Recently, I have relocated from the Country, back to the city. I have more expenses now and although I don’t expect my writing and photography to make me rich, I would love to be able to pay rent with it! For this reason, I set up a Patreon account.
I have been tweaking my Patreon to make it what I’d like it to be. The lowest tier allowed is starting at $5 per month.
These are members of the 320 Love Club! For $5 a month you can see all future photographs before anyone else sees them! I will be choosing a photo of the day, each day, and posting it only for Patrons.
The second Patreon Tier starts at $10 per month. These are Sibby’s Supporters. Sibby is my dog in case you were wondering. This is for my poetry fans. I only share my new poems for my Patrons or in future book ideas I’m playing around with.
The third Patreon Tier starts at $15 per month. These Patrons are my Funny Fans. Funny is my husband’s pet name for me. Funny Fans receive all of the above and complete access to creative writing such as stories, photo essays, e-books, etc.
The fourth Patreon Tier starts at $25 per month. These are Grid’s Guardians. Grid was my husband’s online name when I met him. Grid’s Guardians have full access + and in-depth look into our lives including the ups and downs, updates from prison, special days, legal and medical jargon, and lots of photos! As a special bonus for Grid’s Guardians, you will receive a piece of postal mail each month just to show my appreciation for your support.
Using my gifts to inspire others is my dream. I don’t want to be the woman who survived. I want to be the woman who thrived and inspired others to do the same. Please consider supporting my work! Thank you ~
