Rustlings in the green....imagination, art, whimsy
Professor's wife, mother of four, zannma to two. Grew up in Coral Gables, Florida, transplanted to Indiana at age 40, where I saw my first snow and learned to love wool. We homeschooled three of the kids, I helped to create a used bookshop ( Wabash River Books 1996-2005)and became an online bookseller. I started this blog to share my mid-life artwork (primarily fiber), poetry and creative explorations. On March 18,2006 my 20 year-old son Patrick died...and my world irrevocably changed.
I've just turned sixty-one. Life still seems very beautiful and sweet and sad. I'm in the 5th year of co-hosting a monthly poetry reading at a local coffee house, closed another bookshop this year, still feeling I'm standing in liminal space.Right now my urge is to resist commitments & just breathe, write, make art.
