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.
For a decade and a half, Norstrom experienced a mass of tainted relationships . . . becoming incarcerated by the chains of toxicity. In the artistic world, her literary creations demonstrate a measure of personal growth that magnifies those hurdles conquered, from darkness to survival.
While growing and blossoming, she has maintained a healthier lifestyle . . . staying free of the drama life brings. 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!”

Before she had a playmate, she’d had imaginary friends or dolls—at tea parties, sipping and chatting, or bathing and feeding them. Sometimes she’d even read to them. When she wasn’t playing with imaginary people or dolls, . . .
