When the places of the world seem too small,

when you find yourself getting caught up in making apologies for the space you take up—

you must seek out a space of your own.

This is my space.

One that I am inviting you into:

to read what I am learning

to explore what I am creating

and to find tools that you can take away in your journey of becoming:

in the dialogue between self, God, people, world, things, and ideas.

In my space I can be an advocate, a writer, a singer and an artist and I do not have to explain how all of those things do or do not go together.
