Be still while whispering thoughts linger.


Background Information

My voice at times has been silent, no longer........

From the time I was a little girl, I can remember creating stories within my head.  Sometimes those stories were a means of escape, creating a different world in which to live in.  Those stories within me helped me to sort things out, hope, and understand myself and others.

In high school, I found my English classes a place where poetry took form within me and on paper.  Remnants of those early writings linger still.  In college, at the age of thirty-two, I found myself with a heart, heavy with burdens, to carry and release.  My English professor became the one who assigned me an essay or story to write and would get a heart pouring of a lifetime.  I do laugh when I remember the day he called me into his office, one of my most recent papers in his hands.  I was to have written a comparitive essay.  My efforts were to do that, but became a release of an event in my life, the loss of a child.  He asked me,  "How do I give this a grade?  This is very well written, as a matter a fact written much better than most, but I do have to ask, how does it meet the requirements of the paper?"  When I told him it was my attempt at comparing taking home a healthy baby and going home without a baby, my comparison was made.  He and I did talk a bit more and he reassured me the writing I was turning in showed a potential.  He did give me a B+ on that assignment. Ha. It was a grade  that I took cheerfully, for on that day,  I had someone recognize the stories within me.  He did ask to keep another paper I wrote to use in future classes as a model for other students. 

Time passed and life continued.  About six years ago, I hit another rough spot, a divorce.  After the spiraling of events that took place after that, I found myself online with a group of people who I began writing with.  It all started out as haiku responses to one another, but those three syllabic lines led me to so much more. I have notebooks filled with poetry and writings.  I have stories within me that are crying to be written.  

 A door that I had been attempting to open for years has been  thrown open.  I now have so much to write, I don't even know where to start at times.  I have learned though to just write and not question what to write.  The mind seems to take over once started.  Much like this biography is being written now.  I have put off entering anything here simply because I wasn't sure what to include, it is writing itself.

Additional Information

A little over a year ago, I lost a dear friend in a car accident. Because of family situations, I boxed up her things. Amongst her belongings were journals that she kept. Her family didn't want them. Her story, one that she hadn't shared with me completely is an amazing one. One where silence as a child kept her locked inside herself. My own childhood path carried a great deal of silence. Our two paths emerged and lived lives separately but yet when I have started to read her journey, our lives were more paralleled than I ever knew. Her story, my story is one to be written. Her story..one of being placed in a hospital for a long period of time as a young girl. A self preservation through multiple personalites, cutting and bulemia weaves a story of survival. A story that she never told me about, but now her journals explains so much about her. Her courage to overcome her hospitialization by her family is one to be shared. I think I may need some help with this, so may be calling upon some of you to do so.
