Emma Tree Blog
In the 18 months I've been traversing the blogging world, one unexpected delight has been meeting and making friends with talented writers, artists and the most fascinating creative people. D. Smith Kaich Jones of Emma Tree: Tales of Art and Anxiety is one of those folks. Debi writes of experiences of daily life and describes them in such a rich and exquisite way that you can't help but connect and get what she says as well as feel understood, yourself. I stop there for a visit when I need to refill my inspirational cup.
This is her poetic description of living in East Texas
"It is not Paris.
It is not Morocco.
It is not even Oregon or New Mexico.
It is here, it is Texas, and even then, it is not West Texas,
it is Northeast Texas,
a church on every corner and a taqueria on every block,
feeding your soul and feeding your belly."
Debi's writing talents have earned her three articles in an Authentic Living series for Somerset Magazine and a place in the the Autumn issue of Artful Blogging: Visually Inspiring Online Journals. Both magazines are published by Stampington & Co: Arts and Co, your one stop shop for creativity.
I have many favorite posts by Debi, but below are three I wanted to share:
Night Spring where she writes about her beloved cat Maggie, that we all fell in love with
Empty House, Full Heart After Maggie's passing (still makes me cry)
Sign Day All women should read this one!
