Bio
The young adults in the banner are my children. A Houstonian, I have spent my career as a full-time educator and writer. A mother and wife, a reader and music lover, I mostly write about what I care about. That includes poetryand short stories. This year I'm interested in politics, another hurricane, the economy, survival, cooking, philosophy. Rene, my husband, my son Jared, and my daughter Genevieve, are my favorite subjects. And yes, I love to tell stories about them and everything else I encounter on my journey.

Sometimes in this jaded world, we forget to let the people who count know what we think of them We get caught up in doing more in order to be more, when just being in close contact with someone would really count more than a would-be pundit's words in a blog. … Read full post »

Dear Mr. Obama,

Your triumph is the victory of all people everywhere. What I want to share with you today is why your election is a victory for me. I am a middle-aged Creole woman of many races, someone who like you, is often referred to as a mutt among us… Read full post »

My Election Songs -- November 4th 2008

I just read another blog so I thought I'd add a bit more about the music in my head and heart tonight. Here goes...purestreamofconsciousness.

Lift every voice and sing

Let earth and heaven ring.

Ring with the harmony of liberty.

Democracy is coming to the USA

We'll be making love again.… Read full post »

Tonight I cannot sleep. I am busy lighting candles, meditating on the Audacity of Hope, both Barack's book and the nobility of his cause, this effort to "dream dreams that never were and ask, why not?" George Bernard Shaw's words are haunting me; they echo tonight in the voice of Robert… Read full post »
