A middle-aged woman with a lot to say! Good or bad, you decide. I grew up in Louisiana and moved to Kentucky during my teen years. After that, I lived all over the place, having relocated quite frequently. Along the way I had three phenomenal children, and now they have added three glorious grandchildren to the mix. Richard, my husband, is my confidant, friend, cheerleader and wonderful partner. I am truly blessed. My many jobs through the years included United Methodist Minister, director of a women‘s center, and now a licensed professional counselor — psychotherapist. When I left the ministry, surrendered my credentials, and became Jewish by choice, I found that spiritual matters mattered to me as much as ever. I am still learning and growing spiritually and have never lost the desire to pass my thimble-full of knowledge on to others, as my mentors have passed on to me. May you find nuggets of wisdom, encouragement, insight, humor and learning from these reflections.
Although this blog started out as a place to write my reflections on life and living inspired, it didn’t take long until it became a photo-blog. During much of the time I have blogged, I was also attending graduate school so time was at a premium. By the time I completed academic writing, handing in papers, doing research, etc. ad nauseum, there was little left in me to write regular reflections. Photography however, helped me keep my sanity. It is a wonderful hobby; the most mindful thing I do. It became my outlet. Now that I am working full-time in some of the poorest neighborhoods in the city, photography continues to offer an escape to a more peaceful, natural, soul-enriching world.
