Hello world! I am really so happy that my book is now available as a print book and an e-book. What a wonderful feeling this is for me, and also I feel the book is meant to connect to brain injured people who are in need of hope.
I am proud to call myself a brain injury survivor, and writing the book was therapy and working toward that word. I’ll say it again. Brain injury survivor.
A year ago I really didn’t want to be identified with it. But, I’ve come to be proud of surivorhood. OOhhhh I just made up another new word and that happens with my brain injury. Survivorhood.
If you are working toward your own recovery, or have had a brain injury, or have post-concussion syndrome, I feel I can understand.
Please post a comment about your journey to healing, through healing, toward survivorhood.
Yes, now this book is also available on Kindle. So, it’s really exciting to be part of the self publishing revolution here in the USA, and I am so happy to put my book out in the world.
And it is on sale now for .99 cents. I tried to make it free, but couldn’t I guess. So, this is the best I can do.
Read it and I hope it raises awareness and is shared on to the people who need it!
I really hope it connects to the people who need some hope.

Here is a nice site. This is a link to one of my poems there and there is a lesson to go with it.
I’ve been combing over the proof of my book. This is time consuming, but a good thing to do. It’s all becoming a reality though!

This is a poem at the end of my collection about healing from a mTbi (mild traumatic brain injury) This poem expresses the joy of feeling better a year later after much invisible injury.
Words Keep Bubbling Back
It was this night, and gorgeously
when her daughter sang
her last choir concert
of high school.
So many voices she knew
and knows and the words
bubbled again and again
and words bubbled in tears
Just one large sigh of
mint and forest green.
A year ago all those sounds
were just noise.
Killing, hurtful noise
in a brain injured woman
who loved music but the music
made her sick, and mad.
The ugly holes in her brain
must be healing
because such bubbling
and spilling, and free mixing
of giggling pink and sweet smiling
orange are here again.
She can hear again
and she celebrates this night
and every night with feeling
glittering fuschia kissing sweet orange
Two years ago I had a website. I had my writing there and I was moving forward as a writer.
I had to leave that site due to a car accident in February, 2013. It was a year ago I gave it up and focussed on healing.
Soon I will have a link about my book, Make Art From Your Scattered, Splattered Brain, available.
I wrote about my ordeal of living with and healing from post concussion syndrome.
I am glad to have my website back. Please keep checking it for news of my writing. I also have a Facebook author page here.
Hello and I am glad you are here. I am going to be self publishing a lot of my work from now on, and also I will be listing my crafting works.
I care quite a lot about myself as a fiber artist and as a writer. I hope that this site will help to encourage you in these areas. I am also a brain injury survivor and I will have pages dedicated to that as well.
Browse around and enjoy!
