I am Heart of Lead. A student of many, teacher of few. I am a storyteller and artist who builds on more imagination than experience. I am most inspired by Kipling's poem "If" and especially the quote, "Meet with Truimph and Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same." I have no idea where I'm going but you're welcome to join me on this journey.
Cold and stormy are her eyes, Light is her darting tongue. And I break when she cries, Forever old, forever young. She dances like a grey fairy, Void of colour, full of light. My heart becomes the grave to bury A silver knife hidden from sight. She flits and flies and steals A kiss from the lips of all, Prances away in heavy heels She is my tragic downfall.
