I'm Stephanie. I like people, including the intricate, intimate details of their stories. :-) I love writing about life, people, writing, pens on paper, and street photography. I believe in Mental Health for all, and that stigma should not be a barrier to getting the help we need. #PsychiatryHCP

My delight at the words could not be contained. :-)[/caption] "I was always aware, reading Chesterton, that there was someone writing this who rejoiced in words, who deployed them on the page as an artist deploys paint upon his palette. Behind every Chesterton sentence, there was someone painting with words, and it seemed to me that at the end of any particular good sentence or any perfectly-put paradox, you could hear the author, somewhere behind the scenes, giggling with delight.

"The final twist of secrecy; lives hidden from themselves. Memories lost. "I just don't remember anymore, " they say blankly to their children or grandchildren. Lives leaving not a trace, just shadows..." - Alexandra Johnson ( From Leaving a trace: On keeping a journal, the art of transforming A Life into Stories.)
