Discover Your Innate Power to Live Life More Fully in Peace and Joy . . . 

There is healing power in speaking the truth boldly even when it pains your soul. Each event you encounter shapes your life - resulting in the emergence of a new and dynamic voice – one that is empowered and empowering.

After five decades of expressing my feelings through poetry, and later documenting my mother’s exceptional life, I realized the awesome power of my own voice.

May my words serve as a catalyst to find your own innate power to live life more fully in peace and joy.
