Hello and Welcome! Please enjoy the poems, stories and musings. Feel free to peruse, comment, and just have a laugh or make a face!

I created this site to share with you my inspirations, creative bytes, and writing experiences. Also because, well, as a writer, however inward our work is, what we really want is to share our voice with an audience. My voice is born of the Texas Hill Country, colored by New York City, New Jersey suburbs, a volume of visits around the country, and a spiritual nudging that shakes me up now and then.

For me, there are two kinds of writing: I write to cleanse– sometimes helping me feel better or empowered, and sometimes to help clarify my thoughts and open up to my muse, and I write to share and fulfill the need to be heard. Let me know why you write, and how you define your voice.

Besides writing, I use other means to experience creativity and spiritual growth. One is as an all-faiths minister, performing weddings, blessings, rituals. I love learning how and why others open their hearts and lives to share their important life moments, and then honor me by getting to be a part of that. I also work with animals, mostly equines. As a certified equine massage therapist, I am privileged to become partner in both communicating and healing with amazing horses and donkeys that have come into my life. All of nature is a huge part of my life. I am fortunate to live in the country and have daily visits from hawks, songbirds, jackrabbits, coyotes, and all kinds of other creatures. I have a large pond in one of my pastures where I’m serenaded by frogs each evening and get to watch huge Red-slider turtles laze in the sun by day.

So enjoy, comment, and write in your own voice!
