BIGGEST #1: Coffee makes me utterly happy. Really. In fact, the best discovery I’ve made all week is that there’s a Starbucks that has opened up at my local Target!
2: I love my time alone. I sigh a deep one once the kids are off to school. Though I do watch them walking away from me, the way a breeze can whip up their hair, and for a moment I do miss them.
3: I’m horribly impatient. I’m known for slamming doors. Probably why my boys slam doors.
4: I’m a published author. Yes! Two novels, one a New York Times Notable Book of the year, page 9 New York Times Book Review Section in 1992. These details I remember. My second novel followed soon afterwards and I think you can get it for two bucks now on Amazon.
5: I was a professor of creative writing for some years, before anyone was sucking at my now withered breasts (I meant my babies….) Before I changed out of my now outdated professorial blazers into slippers.
6: When I birthed my babies, I no longer remembered being a writer. So I became a weaver instead. Now that my children are in school and I’m able to think again, I’m remembering that I once was a writer. And possible still am one.
7: I can miss terribly, feeling professorial. But my children are my most ambitious and most beautiful creative endeavors. I devour every moment and regret nothing.
And to pay it forward, I have a special seven all of whom I keep wanting to revisit. If I could, I would knock on their doors and invite myself in for coffee (please, no herbal tea). These are creative, good, kind people and you might enjoy their company as well:
