After working for seventeen years in social services I completed a training program in Expressive Arts at Tamalpa Institute and opened a business teaching aerial arts. I love creative expression in all forms. I weave my love of creative movement, writing, and music into the work I do. I was inspired by Laurie Wagner's Wild Writing Teacher Training to create Rogue Writing. It's a wonderful way to share the strength in both our singular and collective voices.
Below you'll find links to my recent blog posts. Enjoy!
I like to give people ways to freely and honestly express their true selves.
My ideal self is going to buy glass straws for everyone and make little fabric cases for them out
of the children’s too-small clothing.
I have a red sequined dress with spaghetti straps that I’ve never worn.
I’m experimenting with being frivolous.
I teach aerial arts because 1) I hate sitting in chairs 2) I love a task where my toes have a purpose. 3) I love falling and being caught.
I’m not a good housecleaner or dishwasher but I am a good cook.
Telling you what I love feels like revealing a dangerous secret.
I have freckles, children, two dogs and I love to dance.
One of those is a lie.
I like the papery shapes of wilted daffodils, the brown tinged edges curling in like antique lace.
My parents were farmers but I can’t get mint, basil or cilantro to grow in my garden.
I like to see the shadow of whales just below the surface.
The first story I ever wrote was called “Danny Gets A Broken Leg”. I was the hero.
