About me…

I am hungry for life and all its offerings: books, movies, spiritual quests, family, love, even cold French fries as long as they’re lightly salted; then I get full and need some alone time to digest it all and prepare for my next feast.

I am organized when I plan my perfect day with writing time, phone calls, appointments, errands and all. Then I’m distracted by the first Tweet I receive; it invariably means that the next hour will be spent in front of the computer and that I will have to rip my list to shreds.

I’m cautious when I talk to my friends about my quest for meaning.  I’m bold too. I want to taste the sweet nectar of creativity. I want a different kind of life to swell inside me. I want to bring it into the world and watch it grow with pride and tenderness.

I’m a Brussels sprout who was raised speaking French and fell in love with English at the tender age of 13; I’m an  American growing strong roots in the fertile land of the free.

I’m  on a healing journey from anxiety and a head injury and exploring the many paths to joy and fulfillment. I’m discovering life’s countless blessings I’m and patiently growing into my true nature. (see “TBI Tale” for details. If you need support or have questions about the recovery process, please let me know)

    Capturing the ambivalence, and even te ambiguity, of our feelings puts things in a powerful prospective: we actually have been given the choice to approah the same reality from propecytives that reflect our own feelings of the moment.

    It colors everyhting…

    Hi Maryse, Glad told me about your blog, so I asked for your blog addy. Wow!!! I wish I could express myself like you do. You are a remarkable person. Hugs, Kisses, and Love, Rita Jane, Don’s aunt.

  9. Hi Maryse,
    I just read your contribution ‘My Story: Awakenings’ on ‘Meditate Like A Girl’ and thoroughly enjoyed it. I know what you mean about your quest for meaning… wanting to taste the sweet nectar of creativity… and wishing for a different life to swell inside of you. I am a seeker of greater meaning of my life, always striving to connect deeper within my soul. I believe that I understand somewhat your journey of healing from anxiety. I have a son who has autism and he deals with a lot of anxiety and OCD. I was also born and raised French and then married someone that was English.
    It’s lovely meeting you!🙂
