Welcome!

I am a writer/artist/educator from Texas who enjoys learning…well, every little thing that catches my attention. I am a willing disciple of the power of imagination & the possibility of peace on Earth.

I also suffer from “Walking Encyclopedia Syndrome,” an affliction known to transform outgoing introverted bookworms into nervous babblers eager to share everything they know (yeah, it’s a pain). The only time such symptoms are alleviated is through posting & actual, honest-to-goodness conversation with living, breathing humans.

My mission: Be involved in the real world (where it is) & attempt to understand this alien world of “Homo Sapiens-Machina,” in pursuit of truth, harmony, & thought-provoking conversation over the perfect cup of coffee.

Or tea. Lots and lots of tea.
