About

I am a writer and I am a teacher and I am a poet and I am enough and I am here and I am a mother and I am a partner and I am a woman and I am a daughter and I am fearful and I am excited and I am alone and I am with you and I am deserving and I am loving and I am kind and I am frustrated and I am bored and I am tired and I am despairing and I am lost and I am hopeful and I am shadow and I am a voice and I am words and I am worthy and I am a book and I am a phd and I am happiness and I am sadness and I am loss and I am child’s pose and I am warrior and I am savasana and I am the earth and I am love and I am divine and I am all and I am this and I am that and I am heartache and I am envy and I am anger and I am distrust and I am judgement and I am innocence and I am guilt and I am (un)forgiven and I am regret and I am pride and I am intelligence and I am tears and I am a body and I am this body and I am a soul and I am desire and I am freedom and I am trapped and I am multiple and I am singular and I am white and I am solitude and I am feminism and I am my children and I am a blade of grass and I am a ray of sunshine and I am distress and I am my family and I am facebook and I am the sea and I am the wave and I am the rock and I am flow and I am stuck and I am twisted and I am inside out and I am 2015 and I am 2016 and I am every year and I am you and I am spirit and I am real and I am found and I am alive and I am truth and I am light and I am darkness and I am lies and I am insignificant and I am missing and I am these words and I am the space between and I am joy and I am this moment and I am this moment and I am this moment.

‘Writing can be a pretty desperate endeavor, because it is about some of our deepest needs: our need to be visible, to be heard, our need to make sense of our lives, to wake up and grow and belong.’ Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird.

  1. I have enjoyed reading your small stones, Shanee. Some beautiful captured moments and images. I too am a counsellor – I have been endeavouring to write small stones as part of my “mindfulness” practice over the last year. I love your Muriel Rukeyser quote, thank you….

    • Thanks for reading…and for your comment. I am really enjoying this new mindfulness process and hope I continue when January is up, well hope to make it to the end of January first! Your blog looks lovely too – love the combination of text and textiles.

  2. Hi Shanee,
    I really like your small stones. So full but so succinct. Hope all is well with you in Christchurch – it must have everyone on edge. 🙂

  3. Hi Shanee from a fellow student in one of Janet Conner’s Plug-In classes. I enjoy–and appreciate–your “Small Stone” moments. Love “Throw Me to the Sky.” Forever mindful.

  4. Love the one woman and world splitting open quote & use it myself. Glad to get to know you thru Janet and mandala; You can find me at http://www.napkinwriter.wordpress.com — I have just completed one year of blogging — and it’s been a delight to me and a good writing practice.

    I don’t prepare — I just let the stories that want to be told or the inspirations I feel from other people’s work guide me and I sit down and write.

    I ALREADY LOVE YOUR WORDS. Keep at it.

    • Hi Napkin writer, congrats on getting to a year, I am excited at getting to 10 posts! And thanks for your encouragement, look forward to checking out your blog too.
