I needed something fresh new; and yet still, something familiar. I remember when I would fill notebooks with thousands of words—the pages covered front to back with lives, stories, trials and glories galore. Back in my high school days Bus 33 was lit with myself and my homegirls swapping notebooks and journals filled with figments of our imaginations—voices and faces which seemed to levitate from our pages like a mighty fog lifting above a great lake.
Somehow time managed to dilute the passion I had for storytelling. For quite some time, a large part of my brain forgot how much I loved the art of crafting tales as a youth. The latter is one of the reasons LoveTrips™ the BLOG took its initial shaping. I wanted to get back to my free and whimsical writing, but as we see this train has long since headed around a different bend to some degree.
However, recently, the love, the passion, the desire to fill notebooks with lines of stories both based on true life experiences and those that merely seek to represent the historical truths of voices unaccounted for has returned to my heart and to my ink. And return it has with a fiery I should add. Thus, I am happy and overwhelmingly elated to introduce my first work in progress “Death House” —memoirs based on true happenings and witnessed accounts from the collection “Hoyani (Spirit Land) of American Saponi Country”.
