DETAILS ABOUT THE JOURNEY
Why is the topic so important?
What we do in our everyday experiences brings about important life lessons. We’re living inside the topic each day we inhale anew breathe. In These days and times, toxicity has settled in the environment. Just think about it: every day we wake up we’re on the battlefield fighting a war. And just feeling where there’s: good against evil; sons against fathers; daughters against mothers; nations against nations; drugs against diseases; and the list goes on and on.
Over three decades, Norstrom has unmasked the levels of relationships:
pain; abuse; emotions, diseases; work environments; trauma;
and its poison of unforgiveness. In the artistic world, it is those literary creations that demonstrate a measure of personal growth that magnifies those hurdles conquered - from darkness to survival, even her release from incarceration.
While growing and blossoming, she has maintained a healthier lifestyle . . . staying free of unhealthy relationships. Through her experiences, Norstrom has encountered a complete metamorphosis ─ releasing one identity for another. Living inside this transitional lifestyle she states, “I see myself as that long-blooming, rich flower waiting to attract those butterflies. It is there, I’ve come full circle having realized the dangerous effects of toxicity."

Not a Blueprint: It's the Shoe Prints That Matter
My dad, Johnny Sr., worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad in Chicago as a pipe fitter. And that’s where he met Mom. Dad, a Southern guy, wasn’t only handsome—he was a rolling stone. Tall and clean-shaven, he had a small trimmed mustache, and his hair was a mass of silky black curls. He used Murray’s grease to keep the curls intact. It had one of those strong holds and gave a great shine—that pomade did the job. He was always dressed as sharp as a tack; stayed in his three-piece suit even when he was hanging around . . . the house. Now, you’ve heard the phrase, “Papa was a rolling stone.” Yes, indeed, Dad made his rounds with the women. Don’t think Mom didn’t know about his flings. But despite all that messing around, my dad took care of his responsibilities; maybe that’s what mattered.
