About Yvonne L.


Welcome, enter into the Peaceful Journey blog zone

Over ten years ago, Yvonne started writing to debrief after a busy day. But, little did she know her love for writing would develop into what she considers her “Peaceful Journey.” This journey is also where Yvonne says she found herself and her inner voice. Peaceful Journey is birthed from her early blogging days alongside a Myspace blogging community. The journey eventually led her to WordPress where her journey continues.

Peaceful Journey collectively depicts humanistic approaches to individualism. These literary collectibles address matters of the heart. In an effort to promote realism- emotions expressed range from love, hate, rejection, disappointment, joy, happiness, hopelessness, triumphs, innocence, fear, and sadness. These emotions are reflective of human experiences and the human spirit.

Yvonne’s desire is to offer messages of hope regardless of the circumstances.  Peaceful Journey is an infusion of spirituality, nature, and ethnic cultural undertones.

The writer expresses her appreciation for the readers who take the time to read and follow her literary worksPeaceful Journey’s objectives are to display writings that are thought-provoking, encouraging, inspirational, challenging, spiritual, and motivating. Most of the writings are non-traditional, more on a (contemporary) free verse style of writing on purpose.

According to the writer, the array of snippets, poems, prose, essays, and short stories are her perspective of societal issues presented in a creative but simplistic manner.

Among Yvonne’s personal experiences are the honor of having her works featured by Soldiers of Expression and among several literary societies. In addition, one of her poetic works “Love Dance” was featured and choreographed into a dance performance by a professional dance troupe in the New Jersey area.

Although writing is Yvonne’s passion, when not writing, she enjoys listening to music, dancing, traveling, researching, and seeking other ways to express creativity to empower herself and others.
