I’m a writer, poet, and teaching artist, a nomad with roots and a gregarious introvert. I believe a sense of wonder, anchored in attention, opens the heart and mind.

It may be that when we no longer know what to do,
we have come to our real work
and when we no longer know which way to go,
we have begun our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
― Wendell Berry

Find ecstasy in life: the mere sense of living is joy enough.
―Emily Dickinson
