To all my faithful fashion/poetry followers,

I have moved the poetry to a new site:

I hope this will be permanent.  Fashion continues on this site.

Thanks for your patience.

Wrote this months ago...

An expressive spirit caught me

and transformed me into a wannabepoet.

A conduit of  thoughts and feelings,

past, present, fact, fiction, intuition,

some have lived within for years,

others brand new, unaware of their existence

until my pen strikes the paper.

I share these stories in my voice,

images seen in a certain light,

interesting words cobbled into phrases,

some more personal, near to my core.

It's freeing and frightening to be viewed

so closely by unknown others.

I am not sure of my direction,

but I do not fear losing my way.

I met Stuart during the last RVA Fashion Week event and
 sadly, he is leaving RVA to move to New York City.  
I wish him all the best.
 I hope he comes back to visit and share a few of his new creations from NYC!
