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 – agritourism, the arts, books I adore, cancer survivorship, yoga, and, of course, the antics of Wallace the Wonderful and his little brother, Alderaan (my cats). You can also expect to read updates on my current writing projects. I may even share an excerpt or two!

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.
