Since childhood I have enjoyed a deep relationship with the natural world.  Hiking and camping are my greatest joys.  Alone in the high  Sierra, solitude fills my soul.  For many years I’ve been a docent with  a number of organizations leading nature and flower hikes.   Music in its many forms sustains me.  Sharing a meal I have cooked and having stimulating conversation with a group of friends enriches my life.  I have lived in the Sonoma Valley, CA for twenty five years with my companion, Miss Kitty, the cat.

Writing poetry has been a major part of my life since childhood.  My poetry reflects the cycles of nature, Buddhism, Taoism, Shamanism and the Elder Hood experience.  Poems have been published in various Journals and Anthologies.  I’m an active member of Haiku Poets of Northern California, Yuki Teikei Haiku Society and the Sonoma Poetry Salon.  As a Feng Shui Consultant, I enhance homes and environments.  As a Personal Life Coach, I support people in  simplifing their lives and also thier transition into Elder Hood.

Read my poems aloud
How the sound vibrates in your body
In the air
How your ear catches
The cadence and rhyme
How the words feel in your mouth
Like a delicious meal
All this is poetry
From my heart
To your heart
Enjoy the feast
