Our House is a Very, Very, Very Fine House

The MFA program responded to my inquiry, saying to apply anyway and if I'm accepted, they'll meet together as a faculty and try to be sensitive to my needs. You know what? I appreciate that. Green light, all systems go.

This came out today. It's a poem that I wrote in high school when I should have been studying math. I still remember writing it, based on this borderline hateful English friend that I had at the time.

As always, I have all of my writing links on

I'm still trying to figure out blog organization. On one hand, if you're wandering over here because your child has just been diagnosed with Williams, you're not going to want to read about my writing. But if you're my friend, then you'll want to know that finally! Something is happening on the writing front! And it's making me very happy.

I guess I don't know whether I should separate writing from the Williams. It would be neater. Then again, life certainly isn't that way; they're definitely intertwined.

Hi, this is me. We are a household of music and kisses and old movies. And Williams syndrome. And writing. :)

You know i was just thinking the same thing about my blog, but you know what this IS our life. WS just happens to be a "part" of it, it is not all of it. I often wondered if i should make mention of WS in my blog name but thought well......its not all about that, does that make sense. Good, i knew you would get it. thats why i like you.

I think love you with your red hair, Luke's choice of character of Karaoke revolution (Armando, Niko's persistence of a "fishy face" and I really gotta meet Nina sometime :-)
I say ... I like the mix!

I had a borderline hateful English friend in college! Everytime I watch the movie, The Wild, with the boys, I think of him bc of Nigel....probably my very favorite cartoon character of all time. And I think anyone reading your blog would be interested in all aspects of don't have to dismantle yourself for anyone:).

I don't think you need to separate the two. Being a parent of WS and being a writer are intertwined. I am inspired as a parent reading about your day-to-day happenings of dealing with a special needs kiddo and watching you go after your dream. Lots of times we get too caught up in our kids, and that is not "healthy". Plus I love to read, and I am really loving your stuff!
