- The Alchemist

“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things,

and only the wise can see them.” 

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.
