Phoetics© Example: Once I Was A Grandchild [excerpt; Nancy's Truth©]

Using my Phoetics technique (left and right hands) I sketched the self-portrait and wrote the opening lines:

Once I was a grandchild

sometimes a granddaughter

Once upon a time I had two grandmothers

a constant one called Mary

who lived with me until my time was up

My other grandmother was called Rose

by any other name she would never have been known to me

I was not her granddaughter

therein lies the difference

Any woman can do this! Phoetics is the key

About Me, Nancy's Truth© & Phoetics©

I began to delve into female consciousness in 1991 when I embarked on my own healing journey from child abuse. Through ongoing therapy, studying of the works of Clarissa Estes, James Hillman, Kathie Carlson, Monica Sjoo, Jean Shinoda Bolen, Audre Lorde and other feminine psychologists-mythologists and by using my childhood photographs I tapped into my original identity, memory and slowly began to uncover my own story and myths.

Nancy’s Truth© is my mythography comprised of rhymes, prose, poetry, self portraits, all written and sketched using both my dominant and non-dominant hands. When women began to ask if I could teach them how to do the same thing, I created a technique I call Phoetics © meaning: the poetry in every photograph. I believe that it is every woman’s birthright, to reconnect to her story and myth and Phoetics © is the key. It is truly amazing to watch the lights turn on in a woman’s eyes, tears, laughter, that ‘ah ha!’ pause when she first receives its gift and it is the gift that keeps on giving.

Phoetics © is taught in private session and in classes. It is both revolutionary and ancient, as it draws upon a woman’s spirit bloodline and her original truths preserved in her childhood photos.

I was born in Los Angeles, California in 1950 and today make my home in beautiful Columbus, Ohio where I serve as a Guest Speaker, Guide and Advocate for Women’s Empowerment and Children’s Rights. Last but never least, I am the very proud mother of two beautiful, extraordinary sacred daughters, Mara and Sofia
