Every child has a story told about them again and again at birthdays, weddings and reunions. A personal legend. In my case, it began with singing before I talked, playing the piano before knowing my ABC’s, passing legislation before entering middle school and finding my way as a storyteller.
It just happens that my initials tell my legend. MMEWS is my monogram. It represents my first, middle, confirmation, maiden and picked-up-once-upon-a-marriage-that-is-no-more names.
I am a muse. Okay, not a goddess, but definitely a believer in the power of the arts. All kinds. And maybe, possibly, I'm also ammewsing.
