I grew up calling my grandmother Cookie and in turn I too bore that name in school. I have used it since those days in all my art and after she passed it carries a deeper meaning to me. She wore pants in the old black and white photos when it was looked down upon to do so. Cookie spoke her mind with a voraciousness never tamed. She listened to my heart without depending on words. She pushed me to live my life and not to hide.
I am living my life with open doors. Enrolling into art school and starting a new life on my own with my three kids, including my Ex husbands just to be thorough. I moved from my monster house dripping with excess into a little three bedroom on the 4th floor.
Lets see how I go

  1. Hi Cookie, nice to meet you – I am honoured for your follow at art rat cafe, thank you. I have taken a brief tour of your site and am very impressed by your writing and your art – looking forward to dropping by again in near future…

  2. Your grandma sounds like a badass woman. Very cool for you to have inherited the nickname too! My nickname in my family is “cookie” as well. It’s a good one πŸ™‚

  3. I love that you’ve taken your grandmother’s name with such love and affection. So much of her seemed to have rubbed on you amongst other things, courage. She’ll be proud of you, I’m sure!

  4. Aloha Cookie,
    On a comment to a post of mine on the Second Wind Publishing site you said, “I’ve never truly written but this idea intrigues me as of late. Maybe you are right, and it is the disipline of the writers to approach their passion as a job.
    If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life <– I believe this"
    If you do what you love you actually work harder at it, but it doesn't seem like work.
    I haven't read a lot of what you've written, but I did read – I sit here writing. I would like to follow you but if i click the follow button here I will not be following you, but Second Wind Publishing will be.
    Maybe you would like to hear a little more about my writing at http://www.papermudandme.wordpress.com.

  5. So glad you liked “Shatterings” and “Catching a Big Story Wave” on Paper, Mud and Me. – How’s the writing going?

    • My world changed about a year ago, I do not play anymore. Some memories are best kept in your head and close to your heart and some should just be splayed open, disemboweled and burned for good measure. but, yeah being a drummer was fun. hehehe

  10. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  13. I am extremely inspired with your writing talents and also with
    the layout to your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it your self?
    Either way stay up the nice high quality writing, it’s uncommon to see a great weblog like this one nowadays..

    • Thank you.
      I have used paid themes but I like things to change so I move back and forth.
      Seeing as how I write when I am moved to do so , the sporadicly changing appearance suits me.
      I do not know if this is a paid theme or not right now. Sorry πŸ™‚
      I’m happy you liked what you found though. Stick around… You never know what I will blog next (that’s the fun I think)
