About Me

My photo

With a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction degree (Goucher College, August 2014), I am looking at a new phase in my life. From 1992 to 2009, I served as Founding Executive Director of Miriam's House, a residence for homeless women living with AIDS. I left this position when Chronic Migraine Disease overtook my ability to do my job. Now I hope that a writing career will both accommodate the migraines and give me a creative, productive outlet. And soon, September 4, I will launch my Inkshares author page in a bid to hit the 1,000 pre-order goal in 90  days. The book I want to publish is "Nowhere Else I Want to Be," a memoir of ten of my years at Miriam's House.

Remembering God

"If you pass by the gardens of those who remember God, sit down happily."  Prophet Muhammad


I have realized that I need to take especial care of my health and my spirit during the month of July.  The heat and humidity of Washington, DC are again taking a toll on me, as the migraines both increase and become harder to bear.  And - what is good news albeit poor timing - we'll be moving by the end of the month.

So I shall take the month of July off from this blog.  It is essential that, in the midst of the packing and planning, ill health and pain, I ensure that I have the space and time to sit down happily in the gardens of God.

I will begin to post again during August, 2011.

May you enjoy tranquility and gentle challenge this month.
