Searching for Something

"Where is it? Where did the weekend go?" Ever find yourself lost? I know it's a random question. I mean, lost, in terms of where you fit in the world. This is a question that hounds both Loki and me.

It's Friday I'm In Love

Lately, I've had a bit of anxiety over the pups. They are both fine and quite healthy for seniors. They don't act much like seniors. They still demand their daily walks and adventures. I'm convinced daily exercise is what keeps them spry.  The problem is me. I'm the one who aged much faster than they […]

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Super-Juice!

Our mighty superhero scans the hillside for nefarious squirrels. There will be no evil-doers on her watch!  Pack your acorns rodents and move on. As soon as her spa treatment is finished, so shall any interlopers be.

A Dog's Serendipity

"Hi, Pop! I see woo has bacon-n-eggs! I like bacon-n-eggs too!" Don't worry readers. We recognize this thinly-veiled threat. Second breakfast was served to the husky acknowledging such a happy coincidence. After all, we value our shoes. "Had bacon-n-eggs. Must rest." Life is hard. So very hard, for the husky.

Need a Writer?

Everybody has a story to tell, but few have the time to write an inspiring one. Stories connect us. Good stories captivate us. Powerful stories change lives. Yet, it’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it that sparks that connection. When you raise the quality of your words, you create that lasting impression. Good stories reflect not just your ideas, but your voice too. Let me help you find your voice to tell your story with pizzazz!

I Write About Lyme Disease. Here's Why.

Eight years, twenty-five doctors, no diagnosis. Five infections, missed. One immune system, shattered. Forty medications and heaps of  strange herbs and supplements, consumed daily. Five years of daily needles and IV therapy. Eight alternative therapies. One depleted retirement plan. Thirteen years of watching life go on without me. This is Lyme Disease. This is my journey to recovery. This is my story of hope.

Wild Distractions

To distract myself from the difficulty of treating chronic Lyme disease, I picked up the camera and committed to a 365-photography project: one photo per day, posted on social media. Those with Lyme disease know just how difficult it is to stay connected to people and the world around them. Photographing tiny bits of nature just outside my door demonstrated the value of every living being in the world, no matter its size.  The project became a book, "Wild Distractions." In colorful short stories that complement striking photography, I draw many parallels between human and animal behavior with humorous themes of anthropomorphism.

Daily Distractions

Surely you won't surprised that a writer keeps a blog. Here you'll find an unpolished collection of personal stories, educational pieces and one-line zingers. Like all writers, I have a fierce curiosity about all things--from humorous stories about two high-energy dogs to serious, but uplifting, essays on my challenges with Lyme disease.  This blog has been a reflection of my real voice and a sandbox for my creativity for over 18 years.  It's filled with sentence fragments, intentional misspellings or sometimes just plain typos. For my professional pieces, look through my portfolio to see a range of writing.
