I’m a native New Yorker, contented resident of Tucson, Arizona since 2009, who captures images, relationships, and a sense of time and place with carefully chosen words. Writing, public speaking and publishing books, blogs, and articles has given me food for thought to find positive diplomatic ways to wade through the often murky waters of relationships and tension-filled personal and work situations. Words! I love ‘em.
A love affair is the only way I can describe it.
I love words. The feelings they evoke. The sound or way they look written out. Spoken, sung, or written, there’s a power in words that is available to all of us. That power inspires, motivates and changes people. Ask a group to sit with dignity and watch what happens. Backs straighten. Eyes make direct contact. Legs uncross and feet get planted on the floor. There might be a smile. I can easily say that’s what I’m about. Using words to entertain, connect, and share, with humor, caring and affection.

The Writing Life
Blog is kind of a bubblegum word for a noble and personal endeavor. Certainly personal, for what blogger is not casting their thoughts out onto the waters of the literary Internet. And noble yes. I think bloggers do have a higher principle of sharing their truth be it cooking, recycling, ethics, human rights, or the craft of writing.
