Hi, I’m glad you are here.

Sometimes we have to get out of our own way to say what needs to be said. This web site is where I come to do just that. The time for tip-toeing around what's messy, tough, and uncomfortable is long over. I am too old to pretend I have no opinions, and to worry more that my words may offend than that I would say nothing worthy of anyone taking offense - though that is certainly not my intent. 

Books. Stories. Essays. Short posts. Whatever the format or subject matter, I write to explore the soft underbelly of my thoughts and feelings as a woman over 60 who is growing older in these uncertain times.

Some of my writing may be humorous, or a bit cynical. Some comes from that place deep inside where imagination, pain, and frustration bubble up to create resilience. Whatever I write, however, I hope my words give you a reason to think. Otherwise, I won’t be doing my job.

So, welcome. I'm glad you are here.
