I am inspired by Emerson, Oliver, Tempest-Williams, Yuknavitch and Erlich. Nature is my muse, solitude is my sanctuary, emotion is my turmoil, relationships are my curiosity, freedom is my arc. I write to understand. To offload. To reach out. I believe we are one, our story is essentially the same. My hope is to offer recognition and understanding, connection in our shared experience, reassurance in our collective fear and longing for grace. My writing lands among poetic prose, personal narrative and philosophic and spiritual exploration.
