self-portraitWhat if the goal is to meander, experiencing insights, seeing life in a new light. This is how we know we are alive, accepting each day and finding contentment. The creative act: to live as if life is a great poem-because it is! May your path be filled with creativity, and your life be your greatest creative act!

My degrees are in Creative Writing: Poetry, and Education. For several years I was a Master Teacher, as well as a Fellow with the National Writing Project. I grew up rural, lived in various sized cities (including San Francisco) before moving to a small historic farming village in New Mexico.

My greatest poetic inspiration comes from Cesar Vallejo, Claude Royet-Jornoud, Emmanuel Hocquard, George Oppen, Anne Marie Albiach, Jean Daive, Marjorie Welish, Norma Cole, and the great and inspiring philosopher, Gaston Bachelard. Novelists I admire include Umberto Ecco, Italo Calvino, Michael Ondaatje, Jeannette Winterson, and Margaret Atwood.
