I'm Lady Jewells. Lady Jewells is not my real name, it is my pen name. On June 4th, 2009, I suffered a Life changing event, I suffered an acute ischemic stroke to my left frontal lobe and I died. I felt so very loved over there. But my little one needed her Mom and so I returned.
Strokes do damage - Mine was no different, but in some ways it was, because by dying, I got a boost of healing. So, Even though I lost 10 years of Memories (waking up in 2009 - thinking it was 1999!) I woke up knowing I was me! ...Though I lost my ability to think connected thoughts, to read, write or speak well, I could still reason. Instead of being fully paralized on my right side, I only suffered a weakness. And I'd soon discover - I had some other amazing side effects, too.. 20% of my body was now hypersensitive!
Through my healing and recovery, well meaning friends feared the next stroke I had would take me out and the world was going to miss out on my beautiful gift of writing short stories - so in 2012, they convinced me to share. Therefore the writings posted here on Booksie and Booksie Silk, are some of my thoughts and discoveries about who I am, post stroke. After any life changing event, you rebuild. That's what I'm doing. I'm rebuilding Lady Jewells.
By writing - I'm rebuilding my thinking & speaking skills. By writing the stories, I rebuilding the woman in me - I want to learn to love better, I Talk to my 2 beautiful grown daughters to remember and fill in missing memories from the 10 missing years. And I am rebuilding Lady Jewells, the writer. Old writings and new stories are posted.
My writings are my gifts - some are memories of my youth. Some are realistic fiction. I listen and talk with people, and then I morph their stories into bigger stories. When you can't walk - you write. When you can't really talk - to get the feelings out - you write. By talking with old friends and new friends (new - only because I can't remember these people due to my memory loss), I'm learning who I am and some of whom, I was. The loss of 10 years of memories took a huge toll on my life, it did. I faced a learning cliff - but the spirit told me, I'd heal.
To many people, I am a gift of perspective and love. I have lived a full and storied life. I have been blessed beyond my wildest expectations. Blessed with self-love and God's unconditional Love, I walk a positive path of wellness through my Life. Every interaction is an opportunity for more wellness. With every meeting, you exchange a bit of your energy. Thus, to me Every opportunity I am given, is a chance to reconnect, to share laughter, and as much unconditional love as I can muster. ** Have Faith... *** Look for the Good in everything and everyone... I DO!!
When I write, All the world is my stage, and I play many roles. I'm Life's Actress and her Mistress. I'm a Wise Woman, a poet and a philosopher. I walk with purpose and make no judgements. My goal in life is to entertain and inform. To do that - I write poetry, short stories and erotica. Like any good actress - I want to play that part so well - you'll believe I'm not acting. And like many great story tellers (& fishermen), I love to embellish my stories. Great Story Tellers & teachers know there's a knack at making life - more than just a living >>> We want you to grow & Enjoy Life!
