Dancing Timber

Weaving Life

I live in the woods bordering a large state park boasting lakes, forests, walking trails and winding country roads. It’s a peaceful place to write and weave.

Each macrame project begins by selecting colors and cutting cords. The final result is a surprise because I veer off the plan or never had one. I have no idea what I will create until it’s completed.

Writing is similar. Artistic compositions are triggered by an outburst of words clamoring to tell a story. I go for the ride.

Weaving from the heart is powerful magic.

My first story published in Medium, I Was Sprinkled with Hippie Dust on August 15, 2015 was a fun romp that readers enjoyed.

One of the last stories was When Real People Stand Still. Someone left a comment, “Powerful article …”

When I wrote Bra-less Leaders on August 17, 2016 an editor asked if I would mind if they republished some of my stories.

Sometimes I needed to pour out my heart. Defeat is Another Opportunity To Practice Being Prepared was published on February 18, 2019 and is still shared around the Web.
