Welcome! This is a place to peer into the experiences of a woman who lives in two worlds. That would be life on the North Olympic Peninsula and life in the Rocky Mountains. I live in Port Angeles, WA, and teach in Sequim while school is in session. On vacations I live in Fruitvale-Glendale, ID, between New Meadows and Council. Both environments attract me for the opportunities to examine diverse Pacific Northwest cultures and natural environments. I wrote feature articles for a newspaper in McCall, ID, before returning to the seashore to teach. I miss learning and writing about interesting facets of the people and places where I live and I miss publishing. A goal for me is to spend more of my life writing and illustrating again. I hope you will check in to read my posts and leave comments and encouragements. Writers don’t get to put out our hat for tips like street musicians, but I hope to get a little cash for some of my writing once again. This is a way to prompt me toward that change.
