Good writing sustains me, but the best writing has changed me.
The woman behind the words . . .
I’m a daughter, sister, friend, lover, wife, mother, grandmother, cat lady and somebody’s favorite crazy auntie (I hope). All these labels define me by my relationship to others.
I am also a reader and, by extension, a lover of words and writing, yet another defining relationship. As with all love affairs the time I spend reading sustains me, but the best of what I’ve read, has changed me.
