From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

I write a column

called Tea for Two for my hometown newspaper appearing monthy since Oct. 2005. In it I tell the life story of a local citizen of long standing, incorporating their views of how our region has changed over the course of their lives whenever possible. I have always believed that we can learn so much by listening to our elders and try to share that with my column. It also reflects my love for local history. There is an archive at Seacoast online.
Here is the latest;
Obliged to you for hearing me.

  1. What a wonderful woman-and a wonderful article. I love this concept of a recurring article about locals. The more I learn of you, Miss tammi, the more I know we must be friends.
