About

I really hate this about you stuff, but I don’t want to leave folks hanging, so… These days, I am a typical middle aged wife and mom working a full time job. Sometimes it’s a struggle and I question myself. I still mess up all the time, but I have come a long way from nowhere. In days of the past, I was a pending statistic, and not a good one. Here is a short list of things I would like to have considered if you choose to read my stuff:

* I will talk about my parents and their shortcomings. This does not mean that I don’t love them or that I blame them for my own shortcomings.
* I will talk about coming from generations of families steeped in a deep tradition of abuse and dysfunction. This does not mean that I use that as an excuse for the trouble I have created for myself in my own life.
* I am Native American. This does not mean that I was born with spiritual and cultural awareness.

When I first started this blog, I titled it “Savage Heathen.”  The irony I was attempting to utilize repelled Natives and attracted pervs, so I came up with a compromise.  Savage Heathen felt more like me, but I’ll get used to Amber Glows, I hope.  Anyhow, thanks for clicking, I hope you find something you like!

    Your method of “warning” readers to your subject matter only reminds me of the old tale of the ship with a dehydrated crew in the mouth of the Amazon. When told to dip their bucket into what they thought was the ocean, they discovered they had fresh water. In short, you can’t be blamed for casting your bucket down where you are. We all must start somewhere, and blogging is a good place to start..

    keep writing.
