Welcome to my website. I have many identities allowing me to be who I am.
Writer - I’ve enjoyed writing for as long as I can
remember. I write poetry a lot. Poetry is my release of emotions. I like the
challenge of rhyming words and making the poem sing. I also write free verse as
well. I feel better after writing poetry even if it’s an angry poem. The poem
is an extension of me like an extra appendage. I love creating characters. I
daydream all the time about various situations and stories. I use people, whom
I find intriguing, as dolls acting in a play. I mix them together sometimes to
see what comes out of it. I love pretending to be other people just to see what
it’s like. I can accomplish that by writing about it. I am not an oral person.
I don’t talk a lot so writing is my avenue for communicating with the rest of
the world. I never stop thinking; there’s always words rolling around in my
head. I like researching items to put a document together. I like telling
and showing people what I think although sometimes I’m embarrassed by what I
write. I get nervous no one will like it or think it is strange or useless. I
even like editing and proofreading other people’s work. Take a moment to visit www.integritycreativebusiness.com.

Student -I've just reached my aspirations of getting my bachelor's degree. I'm proud to say that I have a Bachelor's Degree in Letters, Arts and Sciences from Penn State. All of my favorite subjects! I’ve been trying to claim this
identity since I graduated high school, but life got in the way. I want to
learn and be an educated woman. I’ve always liked school and loved the challenge
of being back at school. I read and write a lot. I study different subjects because my
interests are diverse.
Artist - I’ve always been a huge fan of most types
of art and proudly boast about my membership to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts
Center. Art has always held a special place in my heart. My father in his
younger days sketched and sculpted many designs that encouraged his career as a
lighting designer. I enjoy walking through galleries wondering what the artist
was thinking and escaping into the picture frames. My daughter has taken
classes at Bemis Art School
next to the Fine Arts Center. Her craftiness has provoked me to create art
myself. I have not played seriously with this creative form yet. The placidness
of working with my hands is quite enticing. I know I’m not skilled in the field
but wish to be able to put the images in my head to canvas. This new avenue may
be another object of my desire stirring up another facet of me!
However, photography is one art form that
I have embraced for many years now.
Music Lover - I couldn’t imagine life without music.
Television could fall into the tarns of the earth for all I care. I have
eclectic taste in music. I listen to most anything but I really like hard rock,
blues, folk and reggae. I know those are strange combinations. However, I feel
at home with the crowds they draw. I like music with messages. Some of the
poems I write are actually lyrics to music I sing in my head. I listen to music
at all hours of the day. I enjoy attending concerts especially outdoor ones.
Red Rocks amphitheatre is one of my favorites. I’ve gone there with my family
and sat upon a blanket under the stars and monoliths listening to some good
tunes. I feel free when I listen to songs. My mind wanders and I can be anyone,
anywhere. I also like singing so I’m always humming or singing a tune. I
encourage my daughter to listen to music and she just loves it. I love writing
and discovering new music.
Yogini - If Art is my religion and Mother Nature my
church, then yoga is my ritual. I practice yoga which emphasizes a vegetarian
diet. Yoga makes my body elastic and my mind fantastic. The fluid dance of yoga
puts my body in motion and mind at ease. I can’t think of any other way to
start my morning. My beliefs are worldly. Yoga accommodates them. Since
practicing yoga, I am better able to tend to things without judgment and with a
kind heart. Don’t get me wrong. I am far from perfect but yoga reels me in.
Keeps me stable. I eat healthy because I like the way it makes me feel and look
good. I don’t eat meat but I do eat dairy products. I’m not sure why. One day I
vow to be a vegan. I’m not crazy about killing animals to eat them, but I’m not
as passionate about it as I used to be. I would be a hypocrite since I wear
leather shoes. I need to be more mindful of it.
Puppetmaster - Poetry is an unusual art where most of the
time the giver is also the receiver. It’s the inspiration that fills your
breath and life lives outside of it. When you relive your emotions through
poetry you are experiencing the fire or numbness that empowered you to feel it
in the first place. Its soothing rhythm comforts you like a favorite lullaby
that would whisper in your ear as a child. This comfort bridges the message
between the poet and the poet’s audience. Sometimes the prose is your intimate
companion but usually it’s your brat. The prose is your catalyst; it transcends
you. Reveal it and the world sees your soul weeping, which is why most poems
remain private. The art of poetry discovers oneself as its own religion. The
journey is the verses that play with you in exchange for your sanity. Once you
collect it and engage it and mold it, you find relief that forms a pathway to
I never feel like I belong. A part of me
is dark and mysterious. Most people do not expect this side of me. Everyone
sees a perky, sweet cheerleader. I actually like this persona because I feel
stronger, more powerful by being this way. It’s where I draw my energy from. I
can get down and dirty with the best of them. I’m rebellious in my thoughts not
always my actions as I would like. I don’t circumscribe to anyone’s influences.
Some days I think I’m a queen in the underground. A lot of my poems and
writings are from this side of me. It’s my way of sticking it to the world.
