Marsh Grass Still from Video



My purpose is to share stories that encourage us to linger in spaces of reflection, growth, and well-being. There’s so much negative news in the world today, pressing problems that desperately need our attention and care, but I don’t think we can adequately address what’s wrong in the world without bolstering ourselves significantly with what nourishes our spirits. This is what motivates every story I create.

Stories are a two-way street, the listening is just as important as the telling. Please feel free to leave comments on my posts because I’d love to hear your stories, too, and I know other readers would, as well.

To explore more of my stories, you can visit my blog page and archives.  If you’d like to stay up-to-date regularly, you can subscribe by email or follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram via links at the bottom of the page.

Spring Spring Comes Slowly May 11, 2015 - Spring in the marsh is about patience and attention to details. While elsewhere, the crocus, daffodils, tulips, and crabapples are in colorful profusion, spring has a much more austere arrival in the marsh.
