I blame my 7 wing. For months, I’ve been mentally tossing around the idea of creating a blog that focuses more on writing and creativity. As a result of participating in #JournalChat Live with Dawn Herring this past Thursday, I found the inspiration and kick in the pants to do it (Doing being extremely rewarding for us 8s).

Creativity has been a big part of my life from early childhood. Not only did I write all kinds of things–plays, short stories, essays, songs (truly awful), and poetry (equally pretty awful)–I also loved to draw, play with color, and just make things up. Some of the things I made up got me into trouble. Again, I blame my 7 wing.
Later I got into embroidering (with a vengeance, one might say), knitting, crocheting, and sewing. For several years I actually sewed my own clothes. Hard to imagine that now.
After moving to San Francisco in my late 20s, I learned a little about graphic design. Then I happened onto collage and I’m still hooked on that.
I appreciate all kinds of literature and writing, as well as the visual arts and arts and crafts. Last year I discovered a wonderful artist in Texas who makes gorgeous suncatchers she calls sunflakes. Now I have nearly two dozen of them gracing my windows. I hope to make many more such discoveries along my path.
So please visit give me a daisy. I plan to post 2-3 times a week and am soliciting suggestions and contributions from friends and readers (and friends-who-are-also-readers).
