I am an introspective, creative, and somewhat unusual person! I have two children, am happily married, and am an R.N. teaching in Community Services at Angelina College, Lufkin, Texas. I am also a freelance photojournalist and writer. I have interstitial cystitis and must tailor my activities somewhat because of the chronic IC. However, I get around the world pretty well via my computer! I love a good story, especially true crime stories, stories about the sea and natural disasters, and stories about things that haunt us. I love to take a good picture and give it life with the beauty of words. To me, the written word is as music is to a pianist. I have learned that through trials, one may still find beauty and wonder.
