About Carolina

I have Bipolar Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I don’t hide it. I once did hide it out of shame.

I’m a veteran; I was in the Air Force briefly until my illness emerged; it ruined my military career.

I have two daughters and two dogs. Sophie is an elderly Boston Terrier, and Gumbo is a Chihuahua.

I read a lot and write a lot. Mostly about myself, but I am trying to branch out and make my blog more diverse.

I was a poet and received a fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center, but I don’t write poetry anymore. It’s not that I don’t want to write it…it’s that my muse left me dry 😦

I am learning photography and will receive my first Canon dslr in June 2017. I may post some pics on my blog, but you can also follow me on Instagram @ carolina.maine.

I try to live a gentle life and change the world around me daily…that’s why I love Gandhi’s quote and changed the name of my blog.

Thank you for following me, and I hope to follow you as well!

Have a well mental health and writing day 🙂
