About the Author

MistressoftheInk is a night owl, coffee-lover, admirer of the artist’s soul. She’s also a quote-keeper and a journal-hoarder. One of her journals opens with the first part of a quote by Aidan Chambers:

“All writing is memory.”

The same journal ends with the second part of the quote:

“All writing is a gift.”

All writing in this blog is memory.

She hopes even just some of it may be a gift.

  1. You have done your part in the alleviation of the human suffering from this tragedy. Just by sharing your time and creativity to share the information is already a great contribution. Thank you, thank you for your significant blogs.

  2. I just read your article, Transitioning, with the Sunday edition of the Phil. Daily Inquirer under the Youngblood column and found it inspiring and touching mainly because you have a great writing style that can stir a reader’s deep emotion. Congratulations for your wonderful blog and if my comment, following or subscription to your blog can add a few liters of rocket fuel to push your spaceship to the new world from the deep abyss of space than it will be all worthwhile. I was in that same spaceship when I retired 13 years ago to pursue new worlds away from my banking career in my 40’s. Alas, instead of reaching that planet, I landed in the blue moon of conformity and routine instead of using that freedom to explore and grow with the struggle. Here’s to your success that when you reached it I will feel the pure joy of landing in that new world through your blog.

    Here’s looking at you wonder woman.

    • Thank you, Tito! Indeed, your comment does add to my rocket fuel; it is readers’ comments like yours that get me through bad days when the spaceship is not running so smoothly. I’m sorry to hear you “landed in the blue moon of conformity and routine,” but I’m sure there are other parts in your personal journey that has brought you joy as well — those parts and little moments you would not have experienced had your spaceship gone on to the planet you intended to get to. “What you focus on determines what you miss,” they say. In the same way, I think that though you missed that planet, ultimately there are many other blessings you have picked up along the other way anyway. 🙂

      Again, thank you for the power-up and welcome aboard! 🙂

  3. It’s a pleasure to meet you, Carla. Thanks for your very kind comment on MIchelle’s Bravery post. It sounds like you know a thing or two about courage, 😉 especially making the switch over to psychology (my major) from nursing. I look forward to reading through your posts and following your work.
    Take care, Christy

    • Hello Christy, it’s such a pleasure to meet you too! How cool to have you drop by my page. 😀 It’s great to get to meet a fellow psychology major ’round here in the blogosphere. I’ve followed your blog as well, and from what I’ve seen so far, you’re doing an awesome job. I’m quite sure that through following your posts, I could learn a lot of valuable insights from you. 🙂

      Here’s to many, many more years of blogging and of connecting with people through our written words,
