This morning the grass was glowing with a blanket of crystalline dew. It looked almost as if a frost had settled in over the night, but it got nowhere near cold enough for that. I went out with my usual cup of coffee in one hand, phone in the other, and snapped a few pictures before the sun rose up over the trees and burned all the glistening drops away.
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.
