Hey there.

 

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”


― Rainer Maria Rilke

 

I find such meaning in this quotation. All of my writing relates to it somehow. "Live eveything!"--the ups, the downs, the all-arounds. My everything includes recovery, yoga, world travel, managing chronic pain, activism, parenting and other life adventures.

 

I believe in living big. Originally from the Bronx, then Connecticut, I've called the Rocky Mountain West home for almost 30 years. I live at the top of a hill in Lyons, Colorado with my beloved husband, awesome daughter and a couple of kooky animals. 

 

My writing has been called "hilarious", "brutally honest" and "brave." I'm a professional grantwriter and nonprofit consultant, work which I enjoy--but my real passions are writing, traveling the globe, gardening with abandon, laughing loudly and sharing true stories with my family and friends.

 

Welcome.
