I am but one small human, on an ever morphing landscape. I have seen so much and yet so little. So many technological advances, extraordinary in nature, and so much cruelty, a partnership born from the most evil of places. I know I am of no consequence in the larger order, but the larger order is of great consequence to me.

my love is not something to be quantified, analyzed or qualified. it comes with trust that cannot be assailed. a hearty bark/meow, a wagging tail. i give to you more than you can ever return my love is true, does not have to be earned.. i am a shelter pet who needs a place... to call my own, a loving space... open your door and i will give you more.
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason.
my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find
inspiration in too many things to list, and far too
many more to remember. i have added
sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from
living with a chronic illness, i have learned the
beauty of each day, and treat each as another
sun salutation, and another chance.
P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my
