Art & Writing



“Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.”
Gloria Steinem

Art & Writing

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

My late brothers would have turned 20 in February, but it’s my hope to carry their light into the future. Inspired by the twins, I wrote this scene in my novel.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”
― Anaïs Nin

A writer at heart
