about me

May 10, 2018 Candace Morris 0 Comments



Hi, I'm Candace.

 I am on this earth to discover myself and to connect that self with other selves.  

I am an introvert who loves being so. On rare occasions, I can cut free and swim in the Puget Sound in my pajamas and channel Pat Benatar on the dance floor. More typically, I tend to gorge on BBC shows, Star Trek, vintage cocktails, long conversations with my good husband, intimate weekend dinners with my friends, feminist literature, and the compulsion to live with intention, authenticity, openness, and generosity of spirit.

Life is empty of meaning without the written word, and I will die trying to capture precisely the right ones.

Whether or not you know me or are just stumbling onto my web page, I welcome you with open arms as we all make our way towards becoming ourselves, which is a life-long endeavor...seemingly impossible today, and damn near attainable tomorrow

If that's not what you're looking for, you can at least stick around for my sarcasm and sailor-mouth - both of which I deliver in amplitude.
