MariMy name is Mariea Michelle Russell and I’m from Philadelphia. I’m 42 and I am an Administrative Assistant with a nonprofit organization here in Philly. I’m not much of a Writer; I usually just write what’s inside of my Spirit at the time and what I’m feeling. I do a lot of Journaling because it’s very soothing and cathartic for me. I’ve read a lot of the items here from you SisterQueens and I am in awe of what I’ve read. My stuff is juvenile in comparison to you SisterQueens here, but it’s OK!!! I want to be a Writer and I hope to glean as much as I can from each of you so that I can be better!!!

Thank you for allowing me inside of your Circle!!!
