I am interested in revealing the untold tales of women
and their souls.
In freeing a woman’s voice.
In elevating the feminine.
To craft and be wholly of the feminine in way and word.
To ride on the back of instinct and to write.
I look for the spaces in which we may seek our rest.
Where words provide pause.
Where beauty cracks us open.
This is what my own heart seeks most –
to be broken by beauty and for words to become the imperfect veins of gold that allow us to weep
and let us truly be.
