Strong light bathed my front porch this morning. The house faces almost due north – which makes for a snowy blanket in the winter – but the sun sneaks in from the east through trees and around the porch columns. An old wood box holds kindling for the wood stove, a bright red match for its contents.
I've never really liked labels: I am this, I am that... But in the interest of introducing myself to the world, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, real-estate aficionado, movie buff, sometime yogi, and aspiring world-traveler. I think that's a pretty good list... for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
