I was going by "Wendy Wenderful" back then. Then another friend added the Ms. infront of Wenderful and I liked it better as people seemed to expect "Wendy Wenderful" to be sickly sweet all the time, I'm not. Then I decided to pay homage to the family name on my mother's side of the DNA and adapted Wendy Carey. So thats the readers digest condensed Paul Harvery rest of the story version of the evolution of my artist names just incase you wondering or something.
Here's a nice quote that helps me bring life into managable proportions:
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.' -Melody Beattie
