Welcome to my creative space where I share poems that will move you (many w/audio), poetry recitations and dance clips that will entertain you, stories that will engage 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, strong women, meditation, music, motivation, dreams, death, isolation, the global pandemic, social justice issues, and I sprinkle in life’s playful and funny. Many 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.

Writing, like nothing else, gives people a chance to examine personal history and rewrite the narrative. Literally. We call this “reframing” in the narrative therapy workshops I assist with. I credit author, Sandra Marinella, for introducing this potentially life-changing and scientifically supported writing technique to me. I have personally benefitted from this writing approach, and …
Poetry exists for mornings like this The jasmine is bursting Orange tea leaves are steeping A gentle rain is falling One drop now thousands Last night’s wishes offered to the stars on me, now fall Your essence etched across my heart I retrace softly and slowly, all that you are I live for mornings like …
