You found me!

Can I just take a moment and say how excited I am to welcome YOU to my little corner of the interwebs? Here you will find my thoughts on a variety of topics – writing, the arts, yoga, books I adore, cancer survivorship as well as bone marrow transplant. Occasionally, I will share anecdotes regarding our cat, Alderaan, and his canine siblings, Luna and Berkley.

This space is intended to nurture creativity and compassion. It is a place of sharing and healing. And, above all, it is a place where you, the reader, are always welcome.
