About Me

DSC_1631I’m a writer, an avid reader, and an amateur photographer. And I tend to follow where things lead.

Sometimes my chosen path is straight, paved, and direct. Most often, however, I travel along trails pitted with problems and challenges. Those are where I love to wander. They’ve led me to careers in radiologic technology, in psychiatric/ chemical dependency counseling, and writing.

I’m a classics movie buff with a passion for history. I’m a crossword puzzle addict with a penchant for exercising and photographing nature. I’m married, a mother, and a companion to Tessa, my adopted, loyal, mushy, affectionate black lab. I delight in thinking and enjoy sharing my thoughts and listening to those of others. It’s how I make sense of my world.

    1. Thanks, John. I’m getting ready to start it up, again. Took a long hiatus to indulge in a long, over due rest. But winter’s on the way and I’m eager to get back into some creative work and reconnect with my readers.

    1. Thanks, Angela. I don’t really think of myself as courageous. But I do love to write and share. And I know we can help each other. Thanks, too, for visiting my site. I took a year off for a long rest. Now I’m returning with a lot more invested in the creative process.
