With the exception of the cup of coffee (substitute it with a green iced tea), this is my ideal creative life. A keyboard, my camera, a plant I’m nurturing, and a notebook. I look forward to trying to put the thoughts in my head into a tangible format; in my childhood it was a notebook, in my teens it was a typewriter and as an adult, it was a computer that was the conduit for my fertile creative mind. My Dad fostered that creativity, upgrading the typewriters with better models–we even owned an electric typewriter, when those became a thing–encouraging me to write, write, write. And so I did, and I haven’t stopped.
