A bit about me

Words woven create webs of meaning –
fragile structures tested by time.

 Welcome!  So pleased that you’ve dropped by.

Spurred on by the threat of cancer, this blog was born in December of 2011 as a gift to myself.  Back then, I knew nothing about categories or tags, so I ignored them and just wrote.  I had about twenty five followers for a long time and thought that was magnificent.

So much has happened since that humble beginning.  I ducked the cancer bullet but now live with ME/CFS, a disorder that effects all body systems and is quite debilitating.  While many aspects of my life fell away, I did discover that living a horizontal existence is quite compatible with writing, and thus I’ve continued with flourish.

At some point this blog evolved into a forum for poetry, and so I’ve started a second one:  One Woman’s Quest II.

About the Pages

Chronically Creative examines, through poetic expression, the challenges of living with chronic illness.  (I was diagnosed with ME/CFS/Fibromyalgia in 2010’s).

Dream Along With Me explores messages from the dream time and will hopefully inspire your own dream work.  New posts will appear from time to time.

Reclaiming Self represents a personal attempt to piece together the fragments of my life and glean wisdom and healing.  New posts will be added regularly.

Four Voices, Part I is the beginning of a memoir/novel I am writing.

Thanks for stopping by.  I like to think that none of us are alone thanks to forums such as this, and welcome your comments or contributions.

Cheers!

V.J.
