writing presence

practising for a whole life

Welcome to writing presence

shyly spreading pollen

an occasional sharing of what I smile at, what I cry with, and some of the rest.

I am a writer, biologist, poet, gardener, mother and friend.

For the rest of my life, I am dropping down more deeply into play, song, poetry, dance and metaphor. Sometimes serious, sometimes sad, and occasionally skeptical and irreverently comical.

I’m making the journey towards wholeness, with a sharpened pencil clutched in my hand, like a torch in my darkness. And also with the journals, the poems, the letters, the prose as shelter from the too-bright sun.

Welcome, friends on the journey!
