I have always wanted to be a writer and to have my work get published. I began when I was in grade school and wrote stories about my family. I moved on to writing poetry and garnered a Special Mention in a collegiate poetry contest. Taking creative writing in college led me to write short stories, which I tried to get published. But, I wanted to write a novel and attended a talk given by Ray Bradbury in Santa Barbara at the Writer's Conference, where he spoke on, "So, you want to be a writer?" He said all you have to do is write a page a day and by the end of the year, you will have written a book! So, I began writing books. I have had two published, one a non-fiction, "A Natural History of the Nipomo Mesa Region," and a fiction novel, "Fat ...more

OK, Knut Hamsun is not my favorite human being, but if you’re going to start judging artists, composers and writers by political correctness, you’ll probably wind up with a very short list of the Appro" Read more of this review »

Growth of the Soil by Knut Hamsun
"To fully appreciate Knut Hamsun, one has to first get beyond his political stance during WWII, a veneration of sorts of the strength & the seeming force of will of Nazi Germany. Many gifted writers have been guilty of falling prey to the lure of powe" Read more of this review »

“At least once in their lives, everyone should have the opportunity to stand by the river and simply watch the water roll on by.”

“We are not separate from this Earth; we are a part of it, whether we fully feel it in our bodies yet or not.”
Sharon Blackie, If Women Rose Rooted: A Journey to Authenticity and Belonging

“Long before God the Father, there she was – God the Mother. Where did she vanish to, this great mother goddess? How did we women become so completely dispossessed? It wasn’t that I wanted to replace a male god with a female god; it wasn’t that I wanted to find a religion at all. I was simply looking for some sense that women might have worth. And I found it: there in the old stories of my own native land, I found it. Filled with images of women creating, women weaving the world into being, I took up knitting.

I began to reacquaint myself with the soft animal object that was my body. Slowly, spending more and more time outside, focusing on the wisdom of my senses rather than on what was going on inside my head, I began to weave myself back into the fabric of the Earth. Some”
