Passion seems to play an important roll in my life. When I was young certain things drew me to them, Music, Story, Water, and Imagery. Those four things I wanted to be close too. That was why I took photography when I was young the music and the imagery. Music still draws me. That is why I sing in a choir these days. Story was why I lost myself in fantasy foe awhile. Story still draws me. That is why i love movies and read books still. Water is something I have neglected for several years now. Last year I went swimming for the first time in probably a year and it screwed up my ears. If I go again this year, I will use earplugs for my ears. Water is something I have never feared. Always jumped right in. When I walk or hike it is usually close to water and always want to see the water. When I hike or bike the greenway, I am always looking for the river. It flows beside much of the greenway.
So now I try to find my own story, and I do tell it sometimes. When I am in the right company. It is a long story at this point. Once years ago a publisher told me I should write my story. I have the photos to illustrate it. I question if anybody would want to read my story. True, I spent much of my youth with many of the legends of Country Music and Rock & Roll and with the legends of Science Fiction and Fantasy. So I don't know. If it would be of interest or not. Married twice and divorced twice. I keep thinking it is not over with yet. But as I get older it is like the world doesn't want you anymore. No matter how much I try to put myself out there. It just doesn't work. Yet I keep after it.
At this point I am probably the only woman in Nashville who was published in Life Magazine. Now that has meaning to older people but not younger folk. My book has a little more meaning to younger, but I am one of two women that I know who have had books out of their work. Still after it, whatever it is. Life.
