What’s the podcast about?

An ordinary woman bares her soul in order to force a self-reckoning. Middle-age caught me by surprise. Our nest had recently become empty, I was working in the same office job for the last seven years, and like so many others before me, I wondered— Is this all there is? I had lost track of my writing dreams decades ago. This podcast is a record of, not only the journey back to a writing life, but also the journey back to my Self. Who was I before alcoholism, marriage, parenting, career, and surviving consumed me? If I didn’t start living life on my own terms now, when was I ever going to begin?

    Love, love, love what you did with the cuing of the negative voices of your mind. OMG! Silencing negative thought is a constant battle. But, thank God, we still do the things we fear anyway! The writing on your blog is so amazing and insightful, and I can’t wait until the rest of the world catches up to your brilliance with this podcast as well. Thank you for sharing your life with the world. Your courage and the grace you carry on your journey is inspiring.

    Comments for Podcast Episode: Discovery of Self
    Toni Morrison once wrote: “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” Same goes for your podcast. You saw the absence of a podcast by regular folk, who could still offer real-life experiences in a way that is, at once, smart and thoughtful and wise and gentle. Starting the podcast is the perfect forum for you, though this blog is just as enjoyable. But your voice is so calming, honest and real. I continue to be in awe of your courage and wisdom. I look forward to tuning in to your podcasts. Keep them coming, please!!

    Comment for Podcast Episode: An Apologetic Affliction
    I’m so glad you decided to create a space, where you can take your time, and share your pain and what you’ve been through without the need to hurry through it so no one else is made to feel uncomfortable. Audre ‪Lorde‬ wrote: “Your silence will not protect you.” And nothing is more healing than the practice of expressing our hurts and traumas, and feeling that it is worthy of the space it takes. Another thing that really resonated with me is what you said about not feeling “safe” as you move through life. I feel you and you’re right, we need to make our own spaces to process and heal, and make no apologies for it. So thank you for this very important and necessary topic and commentary!!

    Comment for Podcast Episode: Becoming a Writer in Middle-Age

    Yes!! So much strength and confidence in your claim of being a writer! You are an amazing writer!! So happy for you! For a long time I resisted calling myself a writer and would not give my writing the time it required. There was so much unrest inside me before I understood, accepted and became comfortable believing… I am a writer. I eventually learned that writing is my life work. It was freeing, in a sense. And I can hear it in your voice. Good for you! I hope others hear and continue reading about your journey, and get inspired to follow their passion as well. More podcasts, please! 🙂
