WHO is “the mess?”
Actually I’ve been trying to answer that question since… well since forever. I have a master’s degree in psychology, have a thriving counseling practice where I’ve worked both groups and individuals for over two decades, and have spent oodles of time reading self-help books, attending workshops myself, and going to therapy myself. Yet I am often left with more questions than answers.
The most honest answer I can give you is… “I am a very experienced beautiful mess inside.” I believe our beauty and our mess go together and are simply parts of a whole, worthwhile, and lovable human being. While the messy parts can cause us great misery and unhappiness, the mess also gives our lives texture, richness, and depth.
I’m the most extroverted introvert I know. I can be brilliant, dark, and every shade in between. I have purple chunk of highlights in my hair – just cuz. Sometimes I feel alone in a crowd and other times I am crowded when I am alone. Writing and clicking pics* help me stay connected, focused, and present.
I have show and tell here….well because I can, and if it brings you a smile, an a-ha, a “thank goodness it’s not just me,” or even a “whew I’m glad I’m not her” then having a mind as busy as Manhattan during rush hour is worth it.

*Do the Right Thing:
Unless otherwise noted, all the stuff on this site was written by me. The pics were clicked by me and if they weren’t I’ll give credit where credit is due. It would thrill me for you to quote me or even grab a picture of mine (no alterations please) and use it on your site, blog, or most of all, share it on social media.. It would also thrill me for you to do the right thing and give me credit for the words or the photo. The highest compliment you can give me is to link to my site. So if you quote me, please add a hyperlink to the page you’ve quoted. I’ll do the same for you I promise. Got it? Got it! Cool.
