The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say. ~Anaïs Nin

Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. ~E.L. Doctorow

Her fingers steadied my body
as i first learned to walk
Her fingers brushed through my hair
as i first learned to be a woman
Her fingers wrapped me in love
as i first walked down the isle
Her fingers curled through mine
as i first experienced ultimate loss
