 I live with my family in sunny California.  I write stories, poems and articles and this blog is my kvetching forum and muse. It’s about Life and Writing. I love writing about life and I’m excited that you are here!

“Doesn’t it seem to you,” asked Madame Bovary, “that the mind moves more freely in the presence of that boundless expanse, that the sight of it elevates the soul and gives rise to thoughts of the infinite and the ideal?”
― Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary

WYSIWYG, aptly describes me. I have a sense of purpose constantly revived by life. Decisions take us places, sometimes places we have no business being at and others where our assignment makes sense, hence this blog.

I am a mom, a dreamer and with faith as little as a mustard seed. My poems, stories and songs are about the journey because sometimes we need signposts that remind us that we are not alone. That we are all here for something more and created for good works.

“Even if it is made up of gold, the sailing boat can go nowhere without the humble wind!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan

  1. Hi/ciao Ama, I just popped into your home. My english is so poor and needs improving. I like your way of writing and thinking. So I’ m following you. I feel so strongly what you write about December, it gives energy and a sort of smiling hope! ( I was born in January the 6th, means something!). Bye, arrivederci!
