I'm a bunch of different things, expressed here and elsewhere. Mother*, grandmother, mother-in-law, small business woman, practicing Buddhist (and I do mean practicing), Quaker, single woman, caretaker, reader, roleplayer, world explorer (through the written world, internet and my own mind and someday via RV, I do hope..). I am more than the sum of my lenses. My children ..all whom I bore myself.. range in age from 22 to 45. I am proud of receiving this award for my lens a rape survivor's poem as well as Angel Blessings from Squidoo Angels.
