BETZ THUNDERHEART DOVE /
I was born, I've lived and here I am. The daughter of a vagabond methodist minister, moving every three years. The cities and towns of Ohio. New people new people new people. Enough time to know those I will not forget, and time enough to remember those that couldn't get over it, that I am a Cherokee and daughter of a preacher. The 60s and 70s – peacemaking with my father. I hold it all close.
A cellist later but an actress by the age of seven. Creating versions, I sing the blues. A grandmother, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a single mother of four. Raising gentleman and caring for many more. Poverty, car crashes, struck by lightning. No kidding. My face still tingles on its left side, the myriad of reminders tingle. But four gentlemen, my sons, single handed but I never thought of it. To be removed from the streets where my father preached his convictions and love. To be forced out of town as I was the unsupervised person with brown skin after hours, caught. My family now following me. And all the clarity.
My bags are unpacked for the moment to exist in the world of “Marie”, a world outside of the cliches of typecast to participate in a world that permits a history I draw from. As a daughter to the earth, as a mother to as many I can be.

Look in my eyes a haze never borrowed inside is the truth a broken bottle softly spoken my rhyme always followed words are few but the tips sometimes hollow if the subject is guilt in the mud I wallow. - by Erica Stepp
