Upon remembering the days of dreaming about her writing space, she envisioned the "green room". At the time, she did not really understand what that meant. The writer has always written something.......a poem to share what she was feeling in her spirit; a play that was actually produced while she was in junior high school; poetry that was inspired by her high school teachers; and poetry contests that she was encouraged to participate in.
There was another facet that had been brewing; that of her life "under the pecan tree". For the writer, this meant that she saw life unfold around her and through the voice of her father, was able to assimilate and understand life as she heard his voice. Her father was a "wise counselor" in the midst of turmoil. His counsel provided perspectives on life that molded her, even as a child; for the writer listened and understood what it meant to exist, be, and "maintain" people principles and respect for others through living.
These same principles filtered into her professional life, where she has worked in Human Resource Management throughout her professional career.
She always remembered her life from under "the pecan tree".
She left the cocoon and the shelter of of the pecan tree. She started to experience life in the real world. The pecan tree had been, was, and will always be such a part of her writing foundation , for it was in that world that allowed for embracing life and counsel from her wise father, whom enabled her to bridge life, living, and experiences in between to understand the potential profound implications to her own life. The combination of these experiences by her embracing them in relevant timeframes of her life, allowed for a comprehensive expression of understanding her sense of self. This included all of her life lessons...living, underderstanding life....life decisions, career aspirations, and challenging her to embrace those experiences. She also learned that those experiences created her soul - her perspective, and her understanding of the intertwinded aspects of life......akin to a pecan tree with its' branches and deep roots.
I know, it sounds a little eclectic, but the combination worked for the the writer. For those experiences gave her the voice that she has for life, for people, for living everyday, for issues that we have to encounter; whether personal or professional.
Personally, as she has lived "under her pecan tree", it has kept her centered and sensitive to how peoples lives unfold. For the writer, it becomes as issue of embracing the two concepts; personal life and work life. I write poingnant messages about both.
Professionally and professionally, the writer has used her writing skills to generate new business proposals, strategy documents, training curriculums, websites, and blogs, and other business related communications. She is also a published author, and currently working on her first novel. She manages two websistes.
She loves to bring research into her projects which adds the necessary amount of credibility to substantiate the positions of "Her Voice" - personally and professionally.
With her holistic approach to writing, she is able to bring the "best" of her into a subject matter; whether is it writing about a flower bud or workplace trends and issues.
