I write to let the hammerhead sharks out of my head. I’m currently writing a book about Cows.
Photography is my way to connect with the world around me.
Knitting helps me process and sort through my thoughts.
I love birds, bird watching fills me up with joy. Trees make me happy.
I teach yoga to people with reduced mobility and/or disabilities.
I give chair massages to people and dog massages to their canine companions.
I also teach meditation and run animal communication workshops.
I collect sock yarn, pebbles and folktales.
“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountain and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting—
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
~Wild Geese – Mary Oliver.
