Begin Again is a resilient "senior citizen". Reinventing and restructuring her life has become almost common place for her.

I love music, books, and sitting by the water. Each of these activities brings a sense of life to me.

She is an accomplished script writer and is currently at the #13 spot on the rankings.

Portfolio | Become A Fan

Sun rays warmed my skin. The fresh scent of spring filled the air. A wave of giddiness washed over me. I took a deep breath and smiled.

The red and yellow circus box tipped and animal crackers scattered across my tray. My fingers picked one and slipped it into my mouth.

"It's a lion, Jack. He's king of the jungle." My best roar rumbled from my lungs.

"Oh, here's an elephant. He's got big ears and a long trunk." Its sweet taste teased my taste buds.

"This one's a bear. He's big and strong like your daddy."

A sharp jab made me jump. Rubbing my swollen belly, I cooed, "Yes, Jack, I'll save some for you."

I made a mental note to buy another box. After all, I was eating for two and teaching too!
