I am From Poem
I didn't call myself a writer until 2007, and it was my husband who named me one initially. Writing has been my passion since childhood, though I never dreamed of being able to publish anything until my 40s. I published on my own site and in a local paper, but had never written anything for pay until 2008. Now, it is a critical element of my job and it remains my passion.
I am a middle-aged, happily married woman. I have a teen age son and two step children in their 20s. My parents call me their "flower child", though my friends consider me relatively conservative. I live in Great Falls, VA with our menagerie of cats and dogs and neighboring wildlife. I vacation in New Mexico and Florida at every possible opportunity.
I was born in El Paso, Texas, but was raised just a few miles from where I live now from age 7 until I attended college at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, VA. I taught middle and high school English for a few years, moved to Okinawa, Japan for a few years during a short first marriage. I earned my M.Ed. in Counseling & Personnel Services from University of Maryland, then taught a few more years, then married my current husband.
I worked with Jeffrey for 12 years as co-owner of a remodeling company, and then I started myNeighborsNetwork.com in 2000. In 2003, I turned my hobby into a business and have been running it ever since.
I am an introvert, shy by nature. I love to read, knit, needlepoint, pet my cats, and of course, write.
I am from
Lover of Light and Laughter
I am from dancing and playing Angels and petulant Souls
I am from Priests
Assigned Sacred Tasks
I collect the sacred tears, the profound sadness
I am from a groovy, magical, mysterious pink waiting room
filled with fresh blossoms and sunlight.
I am from vast Grand Canyon abstract landscapes,
deep as the suffering in your soul.
I am from Blue eyes and Green eyes and Brown eyes.
I am from Eyes that see only my Soul and Hearts that love me with all.
I am a Channel, a Translator, a part of and sometimes a part from
I am Connected and Isolated instantly and eternally
I am from what was, what is, what cannot and yet will be.
I am from grey Dust, emerald Gems.
I sing, I suffer,
I wonder, I wander
I heal and I return
All in Love.
