Welcome to my site. You'll find information here about what I offer.
Our hearts know a more beautiful world is possible. (Thanks,
Charles Eisenstein, for articulating this truth in your profound book.) Helping
to create this new world is my chosen form of activism. I stand for slowing
down, opening the senses, and receiving the blessings of the body, nature, and
I was tutored by the blossoming spring orchards of the
Valley of Heart’s Delight (now know as Silicon Valley), where I was privileged
to spend my 1950s childhood. Later my mentor was clear blue Lake Tahoe, where I
spent my teenage years. The Sierra Nevada and the Colorado Plateau imprinted my
cells with the beauty of their granite and red rock before I gardened in an
eco-village in Davis, California, and later transplanted myself to the fertile
Willamette Valley of Oregon.
Here my pleasure lies in editing books on gardening and
environmental topics, coaching authors in finding their best voice, teaching
writing classes that connect people with nature, playing my guitar and singing at Good
Samaritan Regional Hospital as part of its Arts and Health program, and tending an
energy-efficient and earth-friendly home and garden.
