I'm a speaker, writer, dream reader, and teacher with a wide variety of artistic and social interests. I love the juxtaposition of images and words to shake loose creative energy. I work to make my neighborhood safe for pollinators, I photograph the beautiful world I live in, and tell stories to children and adults.

I also edit and publish non-fiction and poetry, and I offer writing classes and dream interpretation (one-on-one and groups).

Waking the Dreamer Within October 13-16, 2016

I’m thrilled to be offering two writing workshops at this year’s Waking the Dreamer Within Festival. If you haven’t attended before, here’s the description from the Festival site:

“The Waking the Dreamer Within Festival is a celebration of creativity, imagination and the language of metaphor. The weekend nurtures authentic expression through workshops and group events featuring dreamwork, storytelling, poetry, music, art and the written word.
The festival offers a total of 24 workshops all designed to enhance your connection with Body, Mind and Spirit.

It will feature interactive workshops focusing on one or more of the following tracks:
Body: Dance, Yoga, Movement, Sound, Art
Mind: Written word & Spoken word
Spirit: Dreamwork, Fairy Tales, Meditation”

Check out the video! I hope to see you there.

The book release party was a huge hit, with Tim’s friends, my friends, and our friends and family turning out for the big day. Here are a couple of photos from the event!
