This week I am so happy to talk about the wonderful Schmutzie.
This is what I wrote about her for something last year:
Schmutzie is one of my daily reads. I love her writing and I found her blog last Spring when she had discovered she had cervical cancer. I have been happy to read along with her as she recovered and I was blessed to meet her at BlogHer this summer [July 2008]. She has been so open about her fight and her gift is her writing as she can make you laugh and cry and shake yr head as easily as she steals yr heart.
I pretty much love her. She is interesting and genuine. I think someday she will write a book. I have this daydream where we both write books and they get picked up and we tour the country together. She is sweet and small and I may like to carry her on my back as we tell the world the stories in our heads. She has amazing stories.
She has launched a wonderful movement this year called Grace in Small Things and it rocks. Go there and be filled up.
Three things that inspire me:
- other creative people
- the early morning dark
