I love language.
I love lyrics.
I love reading and having my brain tickled by
little black scratchy scribbles on the white page.

    These are so wonderful, Michele. What an inspiring book. I share your love of words – majored in English even though I had no clue what I'd do once I graduated. Thanks for the reminder of the impact of the words we choose. Thanks to you, I'm starting my day to be extra mindful of what I say and communicate today. You always inspire! XOXO

    I've pinned a few of her images without knowing anything about her or her art. Thanks for sharing her little book, along with your wonderful little tribute to the experience of writing from the heart. There's nothing that brings me more joy (and anguish) than producing a piece of writing that I'm pleased with.
