"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams ~ Live the life you've imagined."
This quote, by Thoreau, sums up my life today. I am a poet of the spoken word,
sharing my verse at venues in/around Washington, D.C. I am also a volunteer Naturalist with Irvine Nature Center, teaching children about the Earth and Great Circle of Life.
I studied at an Ivy League school, U. of Penn., with a strong background in math, Latin,
science, and English. I'm well-rounded, with an ample store of experience. Because
my journey took me over troubled waters, I am able to relate to children/youth who
face difficult circumstances. I've been there, so I know. With understanding, patience,
and compassion, I can teach any child what s/he needs to become a 'whole', accomplished,
and happy human being. Is that not what we all want for our children?
