Both consciously and unconsciously, we are continuing to snap ideas together like puzzle pieces. When a picture comes into focus, we see it as an idea, or an epiphany, or the "muse". In reality, I think the idea was steadily forming all along. It just reached a threshold of understanding where we could identify it. Writing, and much of life, I think, is about process, not destination. Creativity and productivity does much better when we can free it from needless expectations and demands.(less)

I write based on personal experience. I take time to unpack an emotion or experience until I discover its inner nugget of universality. I write with this in mind--that loss can arrive in countless ways but on a core, emotional level, there is connection to be found within experiences. There is connection along the path of healing from loss, of finding forgiveness and working toward a deeper happiness. The field of psychology is a science because some aspects of human experience are generalizable. When we combine personal experience with a deeper reflection on the universal connection it presents, the result can be deeply satisfying, profound, and worthy of further meditation. I reflect on these things as part of my own healing journey, and I share them because I know this connection exists. Our visions of where we are traveling might be unique, but we can hold each other's hands along the path, with understanding. I express these thoughts as beautifully as I can, through poetic prose, creative nonfiction, and poetry (short and long forms).(less)

Hello again!

About a week ago, my account was accidently caught up in a Goodreads spam sweep. The Goodreads staff have been very kind and helpful in responding to me and rectifying things however they can. Things happen. The timing of this coincided with 'Small Stones from the River' entering the Amazon Prime Reading program, so I can only guess the uptick in activity played a role in being flagged.

As the author, I wanted to share the unexpected journey that Small Stones from the River has taken. Sometimes I feel like the book's caretaker as much as its author, as the book seems to have created a life of its own. The book is now being used in y ...more
