About Me

Howdy,

I’m Kathy Martens. May as well admit it I’m addicted to love.

And words. And great ideas. And a lot of other stuff.

Here are a few of my favorite things:

* Writing.
* The arts… theatre and film especially.
* Yes, I admit it… I’m an actor.
* I’m also a graphic designer and a sculptor.
* My camera.
* My own cooking.
* My husband, lover, and best friend (all the same person).
* My amazing kids.
* Yoga.
* Firefly.
* Pedicures (not french) 🙂

This, of course, is the short list. The rest will reveal itself as this blog grows.

In 2007 I set out on a journey…

a journey to find myself.

Oh my god. That is so pathetically cliche. It sounds like an impossibly romantic Julia Roberts chick-flick. No offense Julia (or Liz) – I love your work (both of you), I do. I’m just jealous that my journey hasn’t taken me to Italy, India and Bali… so far.

What I mean to say is that I have spent the lion’s share of my adult life grappling with depression, despair, confusion and utter lost-ness. Even back in my religious days, when I was saved, I was lost. So, back in aught-seven, I decided it was time.

Time to take some very wise advice  and assume 100% responsibility for my life. No more whining, no more complaining, no more despair. I was committed to opening myself up to any and all tools that I could find that would lead me to the wholeness and health of my body and soul.

Little did I know that making this kind of promise to myself would bring up all kinds of whining, complaining and despair…

For awhile.

Then the powers-that-be started meeting me at my place of intent, and I began to put my jigsaw puzzle-self back together again. Bits and pieces of wisdom and insight keep showing up scattered along the path. Some of them fit and some of them don’t, but little by little they join together and when I take a step back and look at the picture that is forming, I am stunned.

In the areas that have been connected and filled in, the picture is a crazy collage of flowers, and clouds, and stars, and mountain streams, and van Gogh paintings, and diamonds, and dark chocolate gelato, and sunsets, and kisses. The spaces not yet filled in are only full of potential for more.

I’m finding out something new…

I kinda like me.

That discovery, come to find out, is the most important one on my journey to wholeness thus far.

If you are interested, I would love to share some nuggets with you. I always love it when just the right something shows up at just the right time. Perhaps my sharing may lead to a something that you are in need of at just this moment in time. Seems like that is the way of things.

Hang around a while. See what there is to see, and if you like what you see, pass it on!
