Welcome! I've long had affinity with rainbows--all the colors inherent in white, visible when the sun hit rain or mist at a certain angle; beautiful, vivid, transient, fragile. I also like that rainbows are associated with leprechauns, pots of gold, and home. I wonder if it's possible to cultivate the rainbow in our lives instead of having to wait to catch one. Could we create a sense of home that required no material goods and traveled with us no matter where we went?

I love that everyone is complex—

they all have a story

and that story can be rewritten

It can change with perception—

or time

I love that every day

is another opportunity 

to find something new

discard something old

or fine-tune a quality

once considered hazardous

Irving Berlin

“Got no checkbooks, got no banks,

Still I’d like to express my thanks;

I’ve got the sun in the morning and the moon at night.”

Every month or two I will change up some elements of this site so you can have something new when you visit.

For now and the foreseeable future, I will not have a blog. I started writing one and it became a book, literally. :) While I was putting together this website, I started the next two poetry collections. I've got a lot of illustration work to do for the second.

I have a total of three poetry collections, an illustrated short story collection, and two nonfiction projects in the works. But my next six months are on something even more exciting--working on an audiobook and sequel for Smith-Obolensky Media. These aren't my writings but they're just as dear in my heart as my babies.

Stay safe, well, and warm!
