I began writing as a young storyteller before the age of seven. I learned the benefits of cathartic writing only later at about the age of eleven. Writing out my pain relieved the suffering. It took off the top layer so healing could occur. For example, writing till the tears streamed down my face to then gain clarity as to the real emotion behind my upset. ‘Oh yeah, I’m not angry. I’m hurt and sad.’ I then could ...Read More
Someone once threatened to bash my face in. It scared the hell out of me. I knew in my heart that wouldn’t happen, but it kept me awake at night. It had me looking over my shoulder in the stores where I could run into this person. It was the background chatter in my life ...Read More

I walk between two worlds.
Or maybe I walk between ten or twenty
Or two thousand.
Maybe we all do.
The world of innocence and experience.
The world of youth and age.
The world of spirit and matter.
Wisdom and ignorance.
The world of family and friends.
The world of prosperity and poverty.

YOUR SPIRIT AND TIME
When you worry about future time, everything will be that much further away, because you are gauging your Self and your creations against some distant shore that’s always on the horizon. Whereas, when you give up thinking about time, everything comes rushing to meet you.

Welcome to my first post:
Even though I’m a writer, I was a resistant blogger.
I remember when I first heard about blogs. I wondered what I could ever write about that was so important that people would want to read my online journal.
Dribble, I thought. I certainly don’t want to read other people’s journals. But of course blogs took on greater diversity and became more than an online fad about one’s personal life.

I still didn’t ...Read More

Women’s Visions, Women’s Voice
In the joyous tradition of storytelling and story sharing, Ms. Welles’ paints an evening of women as natural leaders. Silly, spicy, maybe even a tad salacious, powerful women traveling through time encounter the circumstances in their lives—and the men in their lives, to ultimately speak from their hearts to move warmly and wisely towards that which calls them to freedom, their own visions and voice. Stories, poems, monologues ...Read More
