Why do I Spin?
Why do I spin?
I spin because I love the feeling
The rush of adrenaline that courses through you veins
The fight or flight instinct when you see all the people staring
At you
The way you can feel air rushing past you
As the flag goes
Up, up, up
And down to your hands
If you're lucky that is
I spin because I love the sound
The "whish, whish" of the flag flying
Through the air
The sound of a solid catch
The thunk of metal against skin
The sound of an audience after a performance
The cheering and yelling
And my mom's voice
And I love our huffing breaths and beaming smiles
I spin because of the people
I love the inside jokes
And how it only takes one word and we all fall down
Laughing hysterically
I spin because I love the family
We aren't perfect, but we spend so much time
That we can't be anything but
I love how we all rally around each other
We may not always get along but when we need each other
Were there
I spin because it's fun
I may not always like what it takes to get ther

Bits about me:

~I hoard beads... especially pretty shiny ones!

~I only own an iPad, iPhone and a Nikon camera. No laptop, no desktop... everything is simple...

~My parents got married when my mom was 18 and my dad was 24. They are still married today, and have been married since 1970.

~I took dance classes from the age of 9 until the age of 19 from Annette's School of Dance. I took classes in ballet, jazz and tap all those years. I am still a klutz, and injure myself weekly.

~I have three children. Gabrianna Jo is 23 and has chocolately brown curly hair with green eyes. Myria Lynn who is 19 and has strawberry blonde hair and has blue eyes. And their baby brother Rook Williams is 18, blonde hair and blue eyes.

~I learned how to work a Pentax film camera at the age of 9. The next summer at the age of 10, I learned how to develop the black and white film in my grandfather's dark room.

~I've been married since spring 2009, separated more than half that time. If I'd had my way, the wedding would have been in the fall, and by that point I would have known that I didn't want to be married at all... but such as life. At least we are getting along quite well.

~I love my black golden doodle I named Princess Fyona. I will make a folder all for her in my gallery. We earned our CGC and AKC titles December. I’m so proud of us. She will be 3 in April.


If you knew you could change a stranger’s life by sending them a $1 or $5. Would you do it?
i can’t believe another year has come and gone. as years go i have to say it was a pretty happy one. both my kids are alive and doing well. my parents are still with me. i’m still married,, though we are closer to a divorce than we have been. puppy and i earned our arc and cgc titles last month which is pretty exciting. but i had some devastating news that i don’t know how to deal with. financially it’s a huge hit that i can’t afford... all i want to do is run to each person and ask, won’t you please give me your pocket change? because i know it would add up and do something.... i’ll write more tomorrow i’m exhausted.

Your jewelry looks very good!  I really admire people who can do that, as I have no talent whatsoever in that area.  It is wonderful to be able to create things, that are not only beautiful. but things that people can actually use.
