Laurie is an author, singer, songwriter, guitarist, poet, pianist AND a mom (to a mischievous and marvelous teenage son). What she is not – a cook, (don’t expect recipes on here), does not have an ability to use saran wrap (not her friend), or use a drill (don’t ask her to assemble IKEA furniture).

As for the musician – after many years playing on the Minneapolis and Austin music scenes, Laurie now calls Los Angeles home. Her songs and videos can be found at: OR @lauriemarkvart

Everything else on this blog is for endless words, poetry, thoughts, emotions, BS’n and staying within the flow. Sometimes we all just need to sit around and bullshit for awhile. Let it out, let it flow and be present.
