Author's Bio

Nature, interactions with people,art and teaching make my life purposeful, including mentoring Bridgeport school children. An excerpt from my poem "Depending on Light": On the most overcast of days it skims the water or remains a steady sheen. A serenity one tries to assume, the clouds kind in summer, patient in winter.
