Writing is one of my favorite creative outlets, and I enjoy letting the words flow! I post occasionally on my blog, www.theinfinitestorm.com - it's fun and serves as an easy-access online portfolio.

Most vulnerable

I am in love, and love makes us vulnerable. Especially for those of us who value our stubborn independence (I certainly do) - this can be a huge challenge. But I am learning to open up and be vulnerable regardless. It allows us to grow in profound ways, to let others in.

Bicycles hold a special place in my heart for a variety of reasons. As a kid, I explored town on my bicycle and could have adventures without relying on anyone else.
