About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Congrats! I’ve ordered a copy as a gift for a dear friend and it should arrive Thursday if the Goddess of Weather plays nicely. Really looking forward to seeing her eyes light up.

        Thank you so much for the link to the poem being read. I understand entirely why you love it – I do, too. I had never seen this video before, what a worthy project.

          I taught this poem to my students for 7 years before I moved to California to write full time. While there, I went to the Napa Poetry Workshop and Carolyn Kaiser was one of the presenters. It was thrilling to hear her read the poem and to participate in her workshop.

              I love how you say that you were coming out into the real world – you’ve been “doing” instead of teaching. You took that leap of faith and soared like that Heron fledging the nest.
