About Me

Who Am I? And Why Am I Here?

2006

Hello World. This is Victoria from Cleveland, OH kicking off my blog, Ephemerality.

I’m like a lot of people I know. I like my work but feel underappreciated. I care about our planet and the animals. I have a love / hate relationship with politics. I love my parents, my siblings and their kids, and try to do right by them. I like to think I have an innate sense of right and wrong and consider myself a good person.

I love music – I used to write and perform it. It took a long time before I could refer to myself as a “songwriter” or a “musician.” Those monikers resonated and I so badly wanted to stay with them. But eventually that shifted and I felt myself drifting away from that world. I was tired and felt defeated. Yet I had sense of self when I wrote. I felt connected.

And that is why I am here. To connect with you, dear reader. To reconnect with myself.
