Writer and teacher with Women Writing for (a) Change, ‘so much more than a writing school,’ based here in Cincinnati with sister schools spread across the U.S. (www.womenwriting.org).
Retired ten years ago from The Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County (Ohio). Longtime feminist and lgbt activist. Formerly on the Board of Crazy Ladies Center. Co-director of the Ohio Lesbian Archives.
My spirituality is eclectic but I am especially drawn to Eastern Religions. I would call myself Buddhist although I am eclectic. I took the 1st five precepts back in 2000 at Furnace Mountain (KY, a zen oriented site). I’ve chanted and meditated with the Siddha yogis. In earlier decades, I was a priestess in an all women coven. As I said, eclectic!
My main focus is writing (mostly poetry), hanging out with my dogs, having coffee or a meal with my many friends & acquaintances, or just sitting on my deck, overlooking my beloved creek and woods.
