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, poetry recitations and dance clips that will entertain you, and people who will inspire you. ๐ŸŒž

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, strong women, meditation, music, 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.

Feeling the Squeeze

Over seven million people call the land of the five Cs home. Copper, cattle, cotton, climate, and citrus- the economic foundation that drove the 48th state’s early days.
