Lover of words to express what I learn in daily living. My writing usually is in the form of poetry or short stories. I especially enjoy sharing experiences and lessons learned. Living simply in a yurt in the mountains of Virginia. I strive to eat healthy, leave a small footprint, and be of service to the causes I am passionate about.
One past job included managing livestock and a certified organic garden on a farm, which led to writing a regular column in a New England monthly newspaper. I loved writing that column! I wrote about my close encounters with cows, pigs, chickens, and even once about the bull that broke through a fence that I had to retrieve.
After a writing hiatus I discovered poetry soup. That site has whet my appetite for writing again. At one point one of my poems was the top poem internationally. Validation does feel good, but most importantly I am happy if my readers feel joy or are moved to take action of some kind.
Thank you for stopping by!
