Writing has come naturally to Ashley Crystal Lili Bueche since about sixth grade, Mrs. Dauber's English class to be precise. Her first poem described her thoughts and observations of a Salvador Dali painting. In her memories, it is as if it was yesterday, a farm-like landscape with decaying animals and such. From that day forward, words seemed to pour out from deep within her soul, creating migraines if she doesn't write each and every letter quickly enough. These words she has written as her own journal, a diary if you will, of her thoughts, feelings, words, and experiences. Those who truly know her will recognize some of the stories that provide the background for each poem. She must always keep a pen and paper close and available at all times, for her deep thoughts strike at any moment! A few strokes of a pen let out all of the emotion and stress that is pent up within her, waiting to be released. Once she has committed her thoughts and words to paper, she is able to insure her peace of mind and soul. To write for her is to breathe fresh morning dew air, a pleasure and a must for survival.
