About Me

My name is Kelly, and I love the creative process, (and coffee, and Pellegrino.) ย I love being a part of it as well as checking out the art of others. Whether it is the written word, painting, drawing, photography or any number of creative pursuits, I am inspired by the works of others.

Here I am enjoying my beloved Pellegrino!

Here I am enjoying my beloved Pellegrino!

I live in the city of Richmond, VA with my boyfriend and my 14 year old daughter. I have a 19 year old son who lives with his dad not far away (to be closer to his friends and school.) He’s about to graduate high school. Hooray!!!

I have gone through many changes in 2010 and 2011. I have emerged a stronger person. I think I must enjoy cataclysmic change because I have certainly attracted enough of it into my life. I guess it must show in my poetry. In 2011 my son moved out, my husband left me, an old boyfriend resurfaced, I lost two close friends (was blindsided by all of this.) I am not saying this to complain, or even focus on the negative. I recognize that change equals growth, that is what this blog is all about. Shadows (or the parts of our selves/lives that we don’t want to look at.) Lights (or the celebrations/happy inspirations.) I love expressing myself visually through photography. I welcome comments on my photos as well as my poetry.

Life continues to ebb and flow like the ocean, with many moods. I need to express them, even if they make me cringe and I don’t want to look at them. Also the sparks! The fun and gratitude that is there at the same time.

These darker feelings are noghint to be afraid of, they call out for expression, and I share them here for all to see because I see the importance of being authentic. I teach my clients authenticity, so I follow my own lead.

I invite you to enjoy, comment and follow me.

While you are at it, come by and like my Beloved Healing Arts page on Facebook, and come by and visit my website

  2. Hello Kelly,
    Iโ€™ve just discovered your blog and I like it much. It is really inspiring and I will certainly stop by again. Thank you for sharing!

  3. I’m sorry I have posted twice, the first one was with an old name, the second post is the right one (you can delete it if you want). Sorry again.

  4. Okay, thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€
    And thank you for your nice offer, that’s really kind, and I will let you know then. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Thanks for suggesting that I come and look at your About Me page — it’s awesome! You’re much braver than I am in sharing details about your personal life…I have held off on that for several reasons (partly because other people’s stories are intertwined with my own and partly because I’m extremely shy). But maybe I should rethink that. Anyway, I’m going to have to follow your blogs! I did just find you on Facebook too, but I don’t know yet how to sign into FB as my blog page, so I’m following you on FB as myself (Bonnie Fernandes).
    Oh, and also, I wanted to say that your photos are great!!!

  6. Thank you, Bonnie ๐Ÿ™‚ I am not brave, it is my nature. Sometimes it has been a curse to share deep parts of myself, but I figure that I will be transparent so that people will know what they are getting when they get to know me. I will say that is has been worth it ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s been nice connecting with you ๐Ÿ™‚
