Marilyn Campiz

Marilyn Campiz has been a lifelong memoirist, poetess, and writer.  A world traveler, former expatriate teacher presently in back in the USA. She is an active supporter of the arts, collaborating and writing about projects all over the world. 

These are the thoughts the writer began with that started her on her journey,
"What if you lived like you were dying? What would you change? I think that was my turning point. I didn't want to wait for someone to tell me how much time I had left. I don't know how much time I do have, but I do know I don't have forever.  I don't have time to please others.  I don't have time to play games.  I didn't have time to be afraid to live.  None of us do.  I cannot care whether someone approves or not.  So I write what I see and experience along the way, in my own way.  To experience life, every drop of it.  I want to challenge myself to got beyond established perceptions. Sometimes that means to crash long held personal mythologies I encounter along the way.  

I have learned how to let the world show me more and realized I knew so little about life.  I had to be willing to touch and to be touched by the love of others; not being afraid to grow.

With flaws and all, I can only be who I am, reinvention is not required."
