Your body

is the ground metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence. It is your Bible, your encyclopedia, your life story. Everything that happens to you is stored and reflected in your body. In the marriage of flesh and spirit divorce is impossible. -G. Roth

Poet. Writer. Queer. Story-lover. Teacher. Hungry-woman. Feeler. Supporter. Witness. 

Born in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. 

Came of age surrounded by water in Norfolk and Hampton Roads. 

Almost died from the weight of the world in my bones.

Got an MFA and fell in love. Followed her to the high desert of New Mexico, encircled by new mountains. We had land and goats, dogs, sunsets, & heavy expectations for a long life in partnership. 

Had to leave it all behind. Relearning my own heart, my own needs, my own art carried by tension, and pain.

Currently in Denver. Unsure of the future, but doing the next best thing, one next best thing at a time. 

Despite it all, I love. With my whole body, I love.
