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. New England has suited me and my love for the outdoors, gardening, history, music, fiber arts, food, community, yoga 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.
Now, with gratitude, the pace of my life has taken on a new rhythm and focus. My part time work has shifted to teaching yoga, with musical gigs occasionally interspersed. There is more 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 and photography give voice to the journey, and with the wonders of technology, it now can happen within a community of so many others, all over the world….
Thank you for taking the time to make this connection!
