Cotton Candy Cloud: Why I Write

Cotton Candy Cloud: Why I Write

Maybe my words and stories seem sort of ‘fluffy’ to you.

Maybe it sounds ‘like a fairytale’.

Maybe you come and visit to be lifted up.

Maybe you come and visit to be entertained.

Maybe you come and visit to be inspired.

Maybe you come and visit to be encouraged.

But, perhaps, you should know that…

I write.

I write to make a statement.

I write because I care.

I write to let the whole world know-

that I’m not giving up just yet.

I write to let the whole world know-

that while you feel like giving up;

it’s not your very best answer.

I write to let the whole world know-

that I will DEFY GRAVITY.

When I fell down, I winced.

When I stumbled, I shed a tear.

When I veered off the road, I gasped.

When all that I loved seemed to vanish, I sobbed.

But, when you tried to take away the very

air that I breathe, I roared.

And- I continue to roar.

And- I will continue to inspire.

And- I will continue to share my story.

Not necessarily the story that rocks my soul,

but the story that shouts from the mountain top-

I am alive and well.

You can’t take that from me.

Perhaps, all that is cute and fluffy and fancy

distracts you from the possibility that I am a survivor;

a survivor of the very worst nightmare.

Perhaps, all that is funny, and flashy and colorful

distracts you from the possibility that I almost didn’t make it.

Perhaps, it may surprise you.

I am here- sitting right beside you- cheering you on.

Get up! Put your boots on! Start running!

You’ve got a lot of living to do. So- do it!

Live Life Living!

    My mentor and I were discussing all that is

    good in my life, and that is A LOT!

    And, we were discussing the hurdles that

    I sailed over, and the hurdles that I

    stumbled over, and the hurdles where, I,

    ah, crashed and burned. But, eventually

    I got up. Put my boots back on. And,

    I did start running. Like the horses that

    I grew up with -wild and free- in a spiritual

    sense, mind you.

    I knew in my heart that I could do it.

    But, there were times when my brain talk

    said, «No, way, honey, you are ‘toast’!»

    «Burnt Toast!» But, there was something

    deep inside me that my grandparents

    and my parents passed on to me:

    -and there was silence-

    There was this loud, deep, raging,

    thundering roar that welled up inside of me.

    She ‘leaps and bounds’ back on to the stage of her

    life. She loves those little angels of hers. She

    loves to write. She loves to create. She loves to

    share. She loves to sing. She loves life. And, you

    should see her smile.

    Peace,
