Relax, let your mind unwind, and reduce stress with these soothing repeating patterns to create eye-catching optical illusions.
A long time ago, on a warm summer day, I was born in Galesburg, IL. Later, while still very young, I was moved by my parents (without even asking!) to Quincy. Bouncing from parent to parent, and house to house until at 16 I was given a broader tour of the state courtesy of foster care.
At 18, I voluntarily left for Phoenix with a high school friend. For three years I lived there and had many many adventures, before once again returning to Quincy. After getting my life once again settled, I went to college and earned an Associate of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in Art.
Over the years I have held many jobs, but never quite found the right one. I’ve written poetry and short stories on a variety of subjects from raising children to finance for online publication. In 2015 I published my first book, and since then I have added many more over a variety of subjects.
I am the mother of five children, all grown and gone, except my youngest. Which I am sure is trying to drive me mad (as all teenagers do) and have plans to write another book in the future about their childhood, much to their anticipated dismay. I currently live in my hometown, in the house I love, and at the center of the chaos, I enjoy so much. I’m often surrounded by my children, my loves, friends and the strays (both two-legged and four) I take in. Even now, I continue to seek out new adventures, misadventures and new mistakes to fill the pages of my next book, laughing as I go.
