You've found the musings of a renaissance woman; a jack jane of all trades, mistress of none; a focused generalist who suffered the ravages of depression for forty years and survived (just barely) to tell about it.

My intention is to give hope to those who suffer from depression and mental illness, to share what I've learned about purposeful living, to inspire creativity, and to encourage community.

Although, labels often confine rather than free us, occasionally, they help us feel not so all alone, and sometimes their definitions articulate and validate our experience.

The context of my experience derives from the following aspects of my nature:  I'm an INFP, highly sensitive, a Leo, a four with a five wing on the enneagram, and a 3/4–7 in numerology.
