This is my Camino. Welcome.


Hello and welcome, friend.

Once upon a time I walked the incredible Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrimage route through Spain where “the way” is pointed by sea shells. I had no real idea where I was going, but I knew I had to follow them. In a similar way, I’m working in a big city, living in a smaller one, a little unsure of what’s happening. But, this is my camino. Thank you for walking it with me.

As my therapist says, “It’s a process.” I started this site years ago, blogging. I fell off of blogging, and transitioned into artistry. It’s a process.

I’m a writer, an artist, a dancer, a friend. I’m a practicing Catholic. I’m a circus aerialist. I throw a mean dinner party. I’m glad you’re here. Meeting new friends while I’m creating is something magical.

So: introduce yourself in the comments below! I can’t wait to meet you!

And if you want to email me about your dreams or any questions or welcomed pictures of puppies: will do the trick.

  1. I enjoy reading your blog. You mention,allude to having to make choices with one pursuit,
    interest or another and the feelings of guilt,unease when you make that choice , second-
    guessing your choice as worthy. One solution may be what a wise person once wrote:
    Every activity, pursuit should be elevated and focused on as a prayer-tending to the
    moment with its specialness.
