What’s the T?
Chaos, as we know it, began in Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA. At that time, in 1964, the hospital was a small, single building. In the hallway of the maternity ward, an angry woman who was deep in pain announced to all present, “WHAT? IN THE HALLWAY? THIS IS HAPPENING IN THE HALL? NOW?” Thus, the life of Allyson Brooks kickstarted itself with unapologetic urgency.
Although she claims to be raised by wolves, scientific evidence has shown that some human beings were involved. After fighting her way through four schools in Smyrna, GA (one of which is no longer standing–she says she was not involved in its demise in any way), she left home for no good reason.
At one point , she was convinced that invisible fairies were filming her life, so she made sure to look her best at all times. Now, she hopes they have enough footage to start production.
Allyson now peacefully co-exists with her husband Brett, two cats, Ivy and Decibel, and a kind-hearted friend, Bobby.
So, What’s the Deal With the Coyote Theme?
Allyson is the embodiment of the Native American Coyote trickster spirit: curious, playful, adaptable. It takes great effort to embarrass her due to her sacred duty to never take herself or anything else very seriously. And she vows to never cast aside her childlike wonder of the world we live in. She loves to inspire laughter by creating antics that make people think.
She is a paradox: a satire of seriousness, an indirect director, and a critical thinker of invalid arguments. She embraces change and will look at old ideas in new ways. Expect her to be an unpredictable creature of habit.
Allyson’s colorful life has given her many skills. Today, she lays claim to professions that auspiciously interact.
