I'm a ballerina, musician, poet, and writer. I absolutely love to read and write, along with helping people improve their writing. I've been dancing for ten years and love to write about people who have had similar experiences to mine.

Message from Writer

Keep on dreaming, keep on writing, keep on soaring, do what you want to do. If you're heart's happy, you're doing the right thing. Writing and ballet both fuel my soul, they make me happy, and I love to do them. I hope that everyone finds something like this in life, so that they may become happy and have something to turn to when all else fails.

One thing I'm grateful for: The Nutcracker ballet. I was just cast as a party girl, a herald (aka angel) and a gingerbread cookie (one of the leads in the mother ginger divertissement) I'm so excited to start rehearsing tomorrow for my moment in the spotlight. I"m super grateful for this oppertunity.

“What we have once enjoyed we can never lose; all that we deeply love becomes a part of us.” – Helen Keller

Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.” -Anonymous.

One thing I'm grateful for: Patience, it's something I've had to learn how to do within the last few days. I was not patient at all yesterday, and now I've sort of learned to be patient while waiting on the cast list for my ballet company's production of the nutcracker.

“The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God - if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That's what I think.”
Maya Angelou
