I really did not want to write anything about myself, but as the blog has been doing quite a bit of that, I can’t see myself avoiding it any longer. I am someone who has many facets, like everyone I guess. The thing that makes me unique is that I am different from everyone, and as everyone of us is unique in this manner, I guess that makes us all the same, therefore none of us are unique. Quite a mouthful for a starting line, isn’t it. Well, the first thing you probably need to know about me is that I usually have long winded explanations. I want the colourful explanation that tells it the way it was meant to be told. The words that lead you to Cairo and back, because seeing pictures isn’t the same as being there.
I am married to a wonderful man who is a computer geek (which is great, because I am kind of a geek myself) and I’m a mother of a beautiful girl who is, as of the date of this page, eight years old, but to hear her tell it, she’s almost nine. Which is true, she is almost nine. How time flies when you’re a mother. The other day she was small, and now, she’s almost grown. I say almost, because the way time has accelerated in the last few years, she’ll be getting married tomorrow.
I love all things sci fi and fantasy and love reading. Give me a good book, and I’m your loyal servant for life. Well, not quite, but almost. I enjoy painting (but really suck at it) I love music (playing it is kind of iffy at best) I’m a phenomenal singer (when no one’s around)*coughs* and I love writing. I’m currently working on my first book, which is provisionally titled Djembe Drum… but that is just so I can call it something until I give the book it’s proper name. Yes, champagne will be involved. I am also one of those charged with procrastination. When I reached a block on my book, I started my second book. So I am working on two books at once, or should I say, when I have scrounged enough inspiration and time together, I’ll be continuing them. When I feel like writing but can’t seem to focus on my story, I reach to my blog (lovely invention this) or my poetry, sometimes even my journal. Rarely though, I don’t like putting things down that are too personal. It makes me feel vulnerable. I tend to hide my journal and later can’t find it again, so days or even weeks will go by with no entry. So that’s me, in a nutshell, wife, mom, pet-caretaker/parent (owner is such a harsh word) writer, poet, procrastinator and all that jazz
