SEEKING LIFE IN EVERY WORD

ABOUT ME

"We all write poetry;

it is simply that the poets are the ones who write in words." 

- John Fowles

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be an archaeologist. Mostly, I think, from pride that I knew such a big word but regardless - the calling stuck.  Until I discovered pilots.  And then surfers.  And then investigative journalists.

Not surprisingly, I've had several vocations.  For a minute, I was a counselor.  Then a mom (always a mom).  Then a blogger.  These disparate roles all seemed unrelated until one day I realized I was actually writing poetry.  And I decided it was time to use words.

I live in wild places, surrounded by apiaries and chicken runs and goldenrods.  I love wild men: three whole-souled boys and their ever-steady father.  I find God tucked among the mundane moments of everyday life.  And then I write it down.
