About

Welcome to my creative space where I share poems that will move you (many w/audio), stories that will entertain you, photographs that will uplift you, and people who will inspire you. 🌞

My weekly reflective posts ask you to pause, take a deep breath, and a minute or two, which I hope for your sake, you have the time to do. If you appreciate generous portions of thoughtfully crafted inspiring words, then this space will suit you.

Since beginning this blog in August of 2019 I have written about a variety of topics, including the natural world, love, loss, art, dancing, writing, reading, teaching, self-discovery, empowerment, meditation, motivation, dreams, death, isolation, the global pandemic, social justice issues, and I sprinkle in life’s playful and funny. Most of the photos shared were taken by me and are carefully chosen to enhance each post to give you a visual escape during your busy day.

I invite you to join me on this inspirational journey where I capture and interpret what I see, hear, and feel around me.
