Versatile Blogger Award Nominees

Versatile Bloggers Award


I would like to thank The Spiritkeeper for nominating me for the Versatile Bloggers Award. I am humbled and was surprised to receive such a kind acknowledgment. I am truly grateful for our poetic and writing community. Please, do spend time with The Spiritkeeper’s blog Seeing the Whisper, I have enjoyed reading it this April as I discovered him through #NaPoWriMo. You will be stricken with his ability to create poetry with words as well as with images. This is new to me and I think you for introducing me to this new form of hushed expression.

As for myself …

I am American born in Peoria, Illinois. Although I have always dreamed of travelling I am quite domestic. I enjoy gardening in the warm months raising vegetable gardens, herbs, and berries. I can, dry herbs, and make jams in the fall. I am an artist of varying mediums from bending willow to drawing, quilting to fine Irish Crochet lace. I am also a Wuxia film nut. I love the beauty of the genre. I have three rescue kitties and one dog. Love to cook and share with a meal with interesting conversation. I am a very complicated and or complex person. I will keep some of my secrets however, Thank you for reading my work. It means so very much to me. I can’t tell you.

My writing is a spiritual discipline I have always practiced. I began writing before I ever went to school and have continued to write most of my life except for a few years. I find myself, like all writers at times, at a loss. nature, however always seems to have the inspiration I need to fuel my inner fire. I am ever grateful for the voice which lends itself to me and moves through me. I am merely the vessel and the messenger. The message is the miracle for me.

I never graduated from High School. I got my GED at Illinois Central College in East Peoria, Illinois. That is the extent of my formal education.

I began as a way of personal healing after a particularly challenging time in my life. I had been away from writing for a few years and returning to expressing myself through writing became a deeply healing and spiritual connection back to who I had always been.

I believe that blogging, in the light of the world, is a truly beneficial emotional and empowering practice.  Through this practice we are also able to uplift, encourage, mentor, and offer solace to others which is indeed time well spent.

Again, Thank you to The Spiritkeeper and his blog at
