Poppy wants to live in a world where everyone's story matters, regardless of their income or way of life.

As a photographer, she's won ribbons at the county fair. As a spiritual seeker and writer, she's been featured in Jen Louden's The Life Organizer and once published an article at allthingsgirl.net.

When she's not writing or photographing her story, she can be found at her day job as a technology consultant, or at home snuggling her cats, or in the park, taking a walk with her husband.

Healing & Heart


(that's the announcement siren)

Now announcing a new section to this blog - Healing & Heart.

The last few years in my life have been challenging. Death, unemployment, and medical issues have hit my little family, and it's all happened right on top of each other. No time for resting in between! And part of this is that a lot of things that have also happened are really, really painful right now.

I'm going to step out on a very scary branch here and blog about this process. Because I need to talk about this, out loud, to someone who is not, you know, ME. I'm doing it here, publicly, because along the way, I've become a wee bit afraid of being vulnerable, and this seems like a pretty good way to force invite myself to open up again.

Just to keep things neat and tidy, I'll post items about this healing process under this new category so they can be easily located or skipped, as the case may be.

Thanks for your attention. This has been a test of the announcement system. If this had been a real announcement, someone would have brought tea and cookies.


To read the archive of Healing and Heart postings, I have added a menu item above which links to the full archive for this category.
