About Me

Beach at Sunset

Way back when in 1988, my creative writing professor had us write a personal story and mine evolved as "the orange purse."  For all these years, I've been carrying my story with me, and now it is finally time to share.  As I age, the story emerges with varying layers... I hope that through my story, insights, and personal happenings, a sense of kinship emerges.

May your find balance and a sense of well-being.  May your "purse" be filled with reminders that truly help you to live lightly.
