Biography of Angel Marie
Photographs bring me joy.
The best ones take me into the moment.
Make me feel.
A connection is made.
Those are the ones that grab you.
Photographs you are thankful to have experienced.
I adore portraits, photographs of children, pets, birds, landscape, retro, art nudes, b&w and so many more!
Photography is an ultimate love of mine.
The amazing feeling I get when I see something, a moment or image that I just have to capture.
The shots that seem to fall into your lap.
The ones that call out to you.

Fiding a new bloom is a beautiful moment of joy.
Gardening is one of my favorite hobbies.
I also plan to begin growing house plants as well, because the winter months are simply unbearable to me :)

I'm rarely comfortable around men
I also have trust issues.
Lingering issues from childhood, as a sexual abuse survivor.
I was a little girl who found a way to cope with the devestation.
I learned to protect myself the only way that I could.
Zone out. Shut down.
I have no memory of a lifetime without sexual abuse.
I don't remember when I learned to escape from reality.
For as long as I can remember, it's something that happens without effort.
I've learned that this is a common ability of most abuse survivors.
It is a coping mechanism, the only way to block out that which you are incapable of dealing with at the time.
A child soon adjusts to this just being a part of life.
Not a big deal.
Just moments to get through until it's over.
Until the next time.
Denial comes hand in hand with abuse.
When I was all grown up, I viewed my molestation as a minor part of my life.
I actually thought that it was over and done with.
Something that I didn't have to deal with anymore.
Didn't think it had much effect on me.
Didn't understand the depth of devestation carried silently within.
Didn't realize the scars upon scars that had been lurking in the darkness of my denial.
I was completely stunned the day that it all came crashing through.
Out of nowhere.
Out of the blue........
My sister and I were in an argument...she called me irresponsible...
I lost it.
A lifetime of protecting someone you love, from the hell you lived through.
It all came crashing through me with incredible force.
One little word.
Opening the floodgates locked long ago.
That was the beginning.
I had no control over facing the reality of my pain, memories, hurt, anger.
I was 22.
I was finally strong enough to face what I had been hiding from myself.
I was about to begin a journey that would change my life.
My journey toward healing.
But that's a story for another day.
I'm pretty damned opinionated
I'm a huge procrastinator
I'm a country girl
My sister is a city girl
For years my dream car was actually a Chevy Silvarado Truck.
These days I'm longing for a Mini Cooper! ! !
When my youngest son was a baby, I was arrested for smaking my mother-in-law in the face.
She came to my house drunk, calling me nasty names and refused to leave after repeated requests and then demands. I plead not guilty, described the incident to the judge...and was found innocent.
That's the extent of my criminal record, lol!
I love shoes! ! !
I adore heels, but they kill my bunions =(
I luv, luv, luv purses! ! !

[ giggle ]
I'm a tattoo lover! My first tattoo will be a beautiful black and white Angel, elaborately detailed shading, full antique style wings... with a fancy font (still undecided bout which one yet ] with the words 'Angel with a Broken Wing'.
A very strong and meaningful symbol of myself, my life experiences, my growth...
I've wanted this tattoo for years, and as soon as my budget allows, I'm sooo there.
Vintage tee's rock my socks! My current fav is my super comfy baby blue Tee, very 70's style, rainbow splash with 'Corvette' in lettering and an old school corvette image.
Angel Marie Poems
Pretty little girl All dolled up and raring to go Giving away little pieces of herself Searching for what, she doesn't know
Crazy girl All jumbled up inside With a sweet tooth and a craving For the candy that get's her high
Everyone's Got Issues...Welcome To Mine
Broken girl Damaged inside So practiced at pretending That every thing's alright
Trapped in a world I don't want to live Endlessly dying inside I have no more to give
The Magic Of Childhood
I missed the magic of childhood Was taught fear and pain far too soon I never knew sweet innocence Was never given the chance to bloom
Revealing All Of Me
Sitting side by side, your hand I take in mine Trembling, I begin...eyes glistening with tears This may come as quite a surprise... So well I've kept it hidden all these years
The Magic Of Childhood
I missed the magic of childhood
Was taught fear and pain far too soon
I never knew sweet innocence
Was never given the chance to bloom
So many things he stole from me
That can never be replaced
Security, truth, self love
He made me feel only disgrace
