life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"


Music is loading really slow lately...sorry...

I am

I am... still learning how to find my voice, 
I am... beginning to listen to my heart, 
I am.. figuring out how to be strong in spite of some formidable odds.  
It is NOT easy and NOT what some want from me.  Although, artistically I have pursued the life I imagined, I did so quietly.  I did not share that life; it was quite bohemian and was never certain how “they” would take it. 
I am... not going to aggressively pursue opportunities to exert my point of view, change your mind, or beg you to like me.
I am... just becoming strong enough and bold enough to be me.

"What I am"  Eddie Brickell & The New Bohemians
