Welcome to my blog!
I hope you find a post or two that you enjoy. I’m a writer, a mom, and more recently, a nana to one adorable toddler. By trade, I’m a speech-language pathologist. This blog is about my life and work and experiences.
Life has slowly transformed me. Much like a stone in a rock tumbler, my hard edges have been smoothed and my viewpoints softened. I like to call it “blue-sky” perspective. My small but wonderful family, some pretty awesome friends and colleagues and meditative Reiki are all helps along my daily path.
Blue-sky perspective is far from a universal view of the world, and it’s certainly not always easy to come by. In the low-income community where I work, both new immigrant families and more established families have lost jobs and homes. I currently work as a school-based clinician, and am impressed by the resilience of parents as they strive to realize the ever more elusive promise of the “American Dream”.
My background includes working with babies & toddlers in Early Intervention as well as working with high school students and special-needs students in Transition Programs. The students in some of my video links are much like those I’ve had the honor to know, love and teach. I have probably learned more than I have taught, gotten more than I’ve given. Most importantly, I have learned that every life has a gift to offer.
I continue my search for grace, insight and blue sky perspective. And, I gratefully welcome all blue sky comments.
My soul greets your soul! Namaste!
