These stories and poems are reflections of the zany, humorous, and true situations that I either fell into or created because of my very conversational way that I categorized information in my mind. The main consistency in my childhood was the familiar voice in my head which helped me reason and maneuver through the complexities of life. This created some funny life lessons along the way that will make you laugh, or sometimes bring a tear to your eye as you navigate the memories in my heart, and possibly find a familiar note of reasoning. When I had children of my own, I wrote poems to share with them my innermost appreciation of their beautiful lives and the love that burned in my soul. This collection brings me full circle to embrace the odd little girl that I was, which helped create the mother and grandmother that I have become.
