Welcome to my little virtual space. I am so very glad you have followed me from my old blog site or that you have found me in this time of transition. We are living in a very fast paced culture and I continue to strive for simplicity in these complicated times.
I am a poet who writes prose in equal measure. My work here will be focused on observation, curiosity, and reflection upon the world around us. My goal is that the work I share will be a narrative unfolding a stanza at a time, an essay at a time, a day at a time.
For years I wrote through my journey of raising children, developing my calling, and processing childhood wounds. I have chosen a few of those posts to add here. In this season, my writing is taking a different direction. Some of my entries will be political, but many will not be. We are in transitional times and I cannot ignore issues of inequality, the misappropriation of power by government leaders, or the stripping of civil liberties. There are a few things I am passionate about:
Support for Survivors of childhood abuse
Support for Survivors of sexual assault and exploitation
The Separation of Church and State
The Fourth Estate
Spiritual Life- Learning how to live out faith without being a jerk about it. I speak from a Christian perspective.
Art and Creativity
Other issues will likely come up as I follow my whim. I welcome your input and your response to my work, especially if you come from a different point of view. I work very hard to be civil and kind and I expect you to work towards those same goals when responding to my work. Feel free to share anything that resonates with you, but I ask that you give me credit for my words and visual imagery.
