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.

Y’all - you don’t mind if I call you y’all, do you? I’m not actually from the south, I just like the sound of it - yesterday, I told my mother that I can’t join her on the new political blog she’s been reading because the writer dehumanizes their opponents more than I’m willing to stand for. I’m a good chunk of years into my 40s, and it’s still hard to set boundaries with parents.

How to play along

Because safety is a core value for me, I am asking that comments in this space avoid all the ugly things: shame, blame, judgement. I am asking that disagreement and discussion be polite, respectful, generous, and open to vulnerability.

Because community is healthy behavior, I welcome you to comment, to share your thoughts and responses and discuss this with empathy with me and with each other.
