My name is Georgia and I am a single mother. I believe I was born with talents in writing and drawing (plus a few other gifts), but it has been life s experiences that have allowed me to touch the inner side of both nature and people. Changing events started happening to me since the sixth grade. My father died when I was eleven and things just seemed to keep going downhill from there. I have two beautiful girls in my life. This year (2004) is a major year for us all. I will be forty, my oldest turns twenty-one, and my youngest turns sixteen. I have never claimed to be a perfect writer, though I truly believe God has given me the paths that I have taken and the ability of compassion and poem to be there for others. If I can reach and help just one soul, I believe I have done what I was supposed to do in this life. And if someone can read my words and truly feel like someone does understand, then all that I have endured is justifiable.
