I’m a freelance writer, author, poet, artist, and animal lover…especially the canine kind. Six dogs have adopted me – and they’re all big, adorable guys.
I love nature, and enjoy the rain as it dances on the rooftop and window panes… I love to laugh at comedy, and cry when I watch sad films. I wear my heart on a sleeve so I can be very emotional at times.
I am ready to explore the world with a new set of eyes, a fresh heart, and a hungry soul. As a writer and artist, I have always wondered what “utopia” or “nirvana” actually is —
Are there angels, cherubs, spiritual beings? Do the skies meet heaven and earth like a pastel collage of rainbows? Are there green pastures and rolling hills? And do the oceans melt into the orange sun?
My journey begins today…as I learn more about myself, where I’m going, who I am, and where my journey takes me…
I look forward to sharing my my sometimes fascinating and sometimes mundane life with the world…my poetry, my reflections, my opinions, and my experiences… today is the first day of the rest of my life.
