Change is a welcomed experience and wonder in my life. I have lived in six states in several areas of the country (West, Midwest, and South); had multiple careers (manager, paralegal, counselor, student, even ice cream truck driver!) and have always found opportunities to engage in my passion for the written word. I have likewise been blessed with consistency: family and community and God's ever present mercy and grace. In all is inspiration for the finding and joy for the sharing. As I have more time to explore writing since "semi-retiring" (i.e., working 30 hours a week instead of 45+) I have started a blog and formed a writers group. I participate in this lively writing website and indulge in regular journaling. As with so many of my lifelong endeavors I am enjoying the now and anticipating surprises along the way.
