Where Did The Time Go?

I can't believe that on 9/1/08 my book will have been out for one year! It still blows my mind at times that I thought this was impossible! Accomplishing this reaffirms my belief that anything is possible. It also reaffirms my belief in the healing process and that there IS hope for other survivors!

It took me almost 3 years to finish this. In 2005 I had a major triggering event with my abuser that brought ALL of these feelings back. I stand by and I am proud of this work. It has caused a major rift with my family. It is a consequence that I am willing to accept. Maintaining family relationships are NO trade off for tranquility and peace!

I am looking forward to this year's festival with great anticipation!


  1. What an accomplishment to do your book. I am glad you were able to publish it. I have read your poems and think it is wonderful that you have written them and published. Congratulations on your anniversary.
