Welcome to my blog! It contains an eclectic compilation of my thoughts on a wide range of topics I hope you will enjoy!
My blog is a meditation, a poem. It is not a treatise, a scholarly effort, or an argument. It is my poetry, my meditation, and I hope an encouragement to others to engage in their own meditative meaning-making and to finding their connection with an immense luminosity of their own.
I’m a middle-aged, married woman living on the Central Coast of California. I’ve had a lot of losses and a lot of joy in my life, and maybe my thoughts can uplift someone else who is on the journey as well.
