My sweet spot is lyric poetry. I also write essays and creative non-fiction. My author website is a great place to connect. Please drop by.
I write on real life, perplexing and beautiful, and the sacred everyday details that catch my eye. I find God in the muck and the shiny places. God is my hope and my O2, even on days when I can hardly catch my breath.
I’m still considering a tattoo. It will say, “Soli Deo Gloria” or “SDG”… meaning, for God’s glory only. I’m trying hard to sign SDG on all my writing. Heart motive and integrity are big things for me, and keeping myself true to God.
You can read about the germination of this blog here, ‘A Little Background’. The name ‘Buddy Breathing’ is inspired by my friend and recreational scuba diver Art Suke, who has passed from us. We miss you “RT”! And this blog honours a sweet and gentle canine spirit named Buddy who came and left my life too soon. If a dog is a muse, so he was. Until we meet again, my friend.
My husband Bob (talented, patient, design type) + three young adult children (Graeme, Malcolm, Claire and their comings and goings) + one dog (another GSP Emmy, tarnished past, promising future) = life is FULL.
And, my life is made rich by the presence of my irreplaceable friends. They lighten me up and help me find joy and laughter outside the safety of my ergonomically designed writing chair.
These are the words of a life in progress. Thanks for dropping by!
