New Hampshire has been my home for over 40 years, but I have never been able to completely detach from my west coast (Los Angeles) roots.  The North East has suited me and my love for the outdoors, gardening, history, music, fiber arts, food, community and all things cultural, while raising a daughter and still living a rural lifestyle.

My “job” for many years (along with being a mom) was as a teacher, which combined well with also being a musician. Teaching assignments included preschool, primary and special education, with my final years serving as an administrator. Music infused that work, even as an elementary school principal- my guitar and banjo always nearby for an All School Sing.

The pace of my life now has a different rhythm and focus.  When not in times of pandemic, there is time for travel, which enriches and expands our world view, opens the door for new curiosities, and shifts the way we experience being in the place we call home. There is more time to be still and notice what is part of the everyday and ordinary. Writing, photography and of course music, give voice to the journey, and with the wonders of technology, this happens within a community of so many others, all over the world.

Thank you for taking the time to make this connection!
