About me

Occupation Learner, Teacher, Reader, Writer, Yogi
Location Michigan, United States
Introduction My name is Katie Clark. I have Fibromyalgia and while that is what this blog is about, it does not define me (but it sure has reshaped me). I am a proud mom of two amazing adults who are doing good things in this world. I am married to my life partner for over 30 years and so fortunate to have met him at a summer camp for kids called CAMP MUCC (oh the stories to tell). I am a "Mimi" to my little light who makes me smile and see why I need to push on each day, even when my body wants to hibernate. I have recently retired from teaching after 32 years of ELA: Reading and Writing Workshop 6th grade (but still want to do more) and French (FLES style semi-immersion K-6). That means I've been in school for the past 50 out of my 55 years! I think that's because I LOVE to learn and school has always been my safe place.
Interests All things outdoors: biking, hiking, swimming, camping, backpacking, kayaking, exploring, resting All things indoors: writing, reading, playing with my grand-daughter, sitting around talking with my family, sipping wine and sharing hearts with my close friends, yoga, learning, technology, art of all sorts Things I want to get into: music (ukulele or acoustic guitar or both), sewing (using a machine), cooking (like from scratch), drawing/painting, so so so much more. I love to learn and experience.
