Click on the READ THE POSTS above to read my latest thoughts.

You can buy my first chapbook of poetry HERE at Finishing Line Press.

It’s called Ponderings. 

I read. I write. I teach. I learn.
I write poetry and blog posts. I am working on a memoir. I have a BA in Secondary Education-English, an MA in Liberal Studies, and I am always in the process of accumulating various credits. I also have a random degree in visual arts.

I live in the rural northeast, and I used to live in the Arizona desert.

I have a beautiful, thirty-something son who amazes me on a regular basis.

I have sisters of blood and sisters of heart. Sometimes they are the same person.

“What is your blog about?”

That’s a good question, and one I cannot answer easily. It’s what it says: Random Mind Movements Traveling Through My Thoughts Out Loud and Online. I use hypertext because it’s a way of adding layers to my ideas. Sometimes the links are informative, sometimes ironic. I use photographs and quotes to help me more fully express myself. I am exploring this hybridization in my poetry as well. Due to certain constraints, I only post already published poetry on this blog.
