Baldwin says of herself:
has been my breath to living, my heartbeat of survival.
It was my only
salvation from a tumultuous childhood and overcoming the woes of dyslexia.
I’ve considered myself different, extremely creative and visual.
I see beauty all around me, the words form a lyrical rhythm that dance.

This is my creative center where magic meets the divine and poetry happens."

I feel alive, fresh,
I swim as one.
rays lighting my heart,
soaking up spirit, radiating my soul.
I am reborn.
sky, white fluffy clouds,
I feel myself float on a
constant summer breeze.
feet plant in sacred soil growing roots,
this is where my ancestors have walked before.
I am home at last. . . .
