    As a child, C Streetlights listened to birds pecking at her rooftop, but instead of fearing them, was convinced they would set her free and she d someday see the stars.Southern California sunshine never gave C Streetlights the blonde hair or blue eyes she needed to fit in with her high school s beach girls, her inability to smell like teen spirit kept her from the grunge movement, and she wasn t peppy enough to cheer She ebbed and flowed with the tide, not a misfit but not exactly fitting in, either.C Streetlights grew up, as people do, earned a few degrees and became a teacher She spent her days discussing topics like essay writing, Romeo and Juliet, the difference between a paragraph and a sentence, and for God s sake, please stop eating the glue sticks.She has met many fools, but admires Don Quixote most because he taught her that it didn t matter that the dragon turned out to be a windmill What mattered was that he chose to fight the dragon in the first place.C Streetlights now lives in the mountains with a husband, two miracle children, and a dog who eats Kleenex She retired from teaching so she can raise her children to pick up their underwear from the bathroom floor, to write, and to slay windmills and dragons She is happy to report that she can finally see the stars.

  • This is the second C. Streetlights book I have read. I found "Tea and Madness" a unique and enjoyable read, so I was eager to see what "Black Sheep, Rising" was all about. C.

This memoir travels back and forth between the present and past in a pleasant manner, providing the basis for what happened then to how I [...]


  • This book I think is truly special. It's an experience and in depth realisation into the mind of a most troubled and artistic soul. I believe poetry is something extremely personal and means different things to different people. People interpret and pick up on things differently. That's the therapeutic power of poetry. Cee's words will surly offer this experience. Thought provoking and insightful.
