I am a freelance writer and editor, traveling long term. I’m currently undertaking a project called The Year of Dancing that will take me to twelve different cities to learn twelve different dances, one each month.
I write abstracts of political books and business articles for getAbstract, and I proofread JAVA, a monthly cultural magazine in Phoenix.
The blog link in the topbar goes to Lift & Dwell, where I keep friends and family up to date on my activities and travels. There’s a trail of wreckage I’ve left on the Internet, if you care to Google.
I’m intensely interested in the processes and potentials of emotional healing and spiritual growth. I experienced fairly intense covert and overt emotional and sexual abuse during my childhood, but for as long as I can remember, I’ve believed it must be possible to heal all wounds and go on to have a marvelous life. I’m finding this to be true. The most life-changing material for healing and growth that I’ve found is Jesus and Mary’s teachings here and here.
I love the power and beauty of the written word. I enjoy writing, I read widely, and I love reading aloud. I swoon over physical books. I also enjoy travel, nature, bicycling, motorbikes, dance, trains, and knitting.
