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...

Nanny's Tulip Tree

Remembering a gracious southern lady!  Blossoms from Nanny’s tulip tree remind me so much of her!  These incredible delicate blooms on really tough wood branches are the perfect description of Nanny.  A kind southern woman that could charm you out of anything, but do not mess with her!  She had the strength of 3 men!  She grew the most wonderful feminine gardens and gorgeous flower beds, the perfect picture of southern hospitality but ran her business and miles of orange groves with an iron fist.  She would run a crew of “pickers” harvesting fruit all morning and sit in her sewing room mending that afternoon.  There was nothing she could not do.  I am so happy that there are reminders of her all around me.
