I’m a writer, photographer, gardener, and somewhat-fanatical grandma making the most of this season of jubilación. I thought I’d have things figured out by now, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay.
I live in British Columbia, Canada with my husband and our doted-upon Yorkshire Terrier, Maya, but I’ll always be a Saskatchewan prairie girl.
I dabble with words. I wrote a book called Two Hearts: An Adoptee’s Journey Through Grief to Gratitude about my messy quest to find a family. I’m working on a second one about my faith and how it works itself out in ordinary and extraordinary days. My work has been included in a couple of anthologies and in an assortment of online and in-print publications.
I think a lot about grace, and love, and faith, and do my best to wrap my mind around it all (hence, the book I’m working on). And the sweetness . . . ah, the sweetness. Tapping out words helps.
I love yellow legal pads, Moleskin notebooks, multi-coloured index cards, sticky notes, and Uni-Ball 207 gel pens. And soy milky frothy coffee.
I’m at my best early in the morning. Waking around four gives me a good chunk of solitary time for prayer, reflection, reading, and writing before I have to do life.
Questions, comments, or just want to say hi? I’d love to hear from you.
