Welcome to Words Lines and Spaces, Looking at Life Word by Word. I am a writer, although I may be more aptly described as a Creative. I am known as an “Old-Person Whisperer” and spend many of my daylight hours working on behalf of the elderly and disabled. I speak and do workshops on the topics of aging and care for the elderly. I love to gather people around my table, or around many tables, to cook for them and to provide nourishment for body and soul. Even though it can be difficult and is oftentimes painful I enjoy writing and delivering personalized eulogies, particularly for people who have had an impact on my life. I find it thrilling to watch a group of people listen and engage with stories that can be the catalyst for growth in their own lives.
I have been on a writing hiatus, but am now ready to return. My previous work appeared in both literary and religious publications, both poetry and prose.
Thanks for reading,
