Self Portrait









I am glad you found me and my little space on the world-wide-web! I would like to use this site to share life stories with you and hope you also share back. My book, "Show and Tell" certainly tells a fair bit of my story.

I believe in attempting to live richly and purposefully. I write poetry, and at times can be found pulled off by the side of the road witting a thought or idea that came my way or pulling out pen and paper while cleaning the horse barn. I also collect quotes I find to be profound. I hope you look around the site, I would love to hear from you.

A Few Favorite Quotes:
"Life is not measured by the breaths you take but rather by the moments that take our breath away."

"Were you so busy trying to become that you couldn't enjoy being?"

"How do you become somebody? Everyone on Earth is just a piece of driftin' wood until they become somethin' different, somethin' better."


Also available now:
Of Children and Horses is a collection of poetry. The poems reveal an intimate look into two of the author's great passions. First, the children in her life (both at home and in her job as a classroom teacher). And secondly the horses in her life, her own beloved charges as well as those she rescues and others she has had the pleasure to meet and interact with.
