The house is quiet after a busy day.
I sit alone on the sofa,
Reflecting as I listen to the clock in the kitchen;
Tick, tock, tick…


Priscilla, my cat,
Joins me at the other end of the couch by my feet.
She purrs with contentment;
A soft, rhythmic sound.


Friends, family and neighbors surround me,
I am wealthy:
Love, peace, hope and joy
Fill my soul.


Life’s treasures are funny,
Often mysterious.
The greatest ones are a bit intangible;
Perhaps even indescribable.


Catching thoughts is like chasing clouds;
My mind is sleepy.
Coziness wraps me in her blanket;
Time to rest now.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
