Who Am I?

clbportraitIf you are reading this site, you may wonder who I am.  For about 40 years, I have written stories,  poems, memoirs, features, reviews and other pieces for a variety of women’s literary, art, and spirituality publications.  My work has appeared in The Goddess Pages, Feminism and Religion,  SageWoman, Moondance,  the We’Moon calendars, Matrifocus, The Beltane Papers, and Women Artists News, among others.  I have also given readings and workshops.  I see my writing as a bridge between everyday life now and a world where all people believe that they and all other beings are sacred, everyone is respected for who they are, love is unconditional, and creativity is an everyday occurrence.  I guess you could say I am an old-fashioned utopian whose means of creating the future is the written word.

I raise a family and live in a small New England town in a very old house where I love to grow herbs and native plants.

    I look forward to reading your novel!

    I cherish your writing, your gift of spirit, and your energy. Thank you for being here…it’s such a loVely, soothing, uplifting place to visit.

    Thank you so much! I live in what has been snow country for the past couple of weeks so have been shovelling and otherwise trying to cope instead of writing any posts, so I really appreciate these words of encouragement to get back here among wonderful people like you!

    Oh, I’m sorry about the snow shoveling! Keep warm and safe.

    Looking forward to more posts when you get a break from snow duty. Snuggly wishes, Goddess Sister, MW

    Thank you so much for these good wishes! Now it’s not only snow shovelling, but I was in a car accident this morning caused partly by weather (and partly by the other driver who decided to run a red light on icy streets…) so I’m dealing with that, too. But now I have more time to write because I won’t be driving anyplace for awhile! Hope you are safe and warm wherever you are!

    Oh, I hope no one was hurt! All you alright physically? I know a car accident is always traumatic emotionally and spiritually. Driving on ice, especially the dreaded black ice, is treacherous. Walking on it isn’t a whole lot better! Sending many blessings for safe passage wherever you may be or venture. LoVe and emotional hugs, MW

    Thank you for your blessings! I had a typical level of whiplash/muscle strain, but I wasn’t seriously injured. Even though it was a snowy day, it was actually caused by someone running a red light and whacking a snowplow, which sent him flying across the intersection right into my car head on. I’m looking for the message in the experience but so far can only come up with “don’t be sitting at an intersection when another car runs a red light.” Thank you again for your concern – actually, I have been overwhelmed by the concern of so many people – maybe that’s the lesson!
