About me

Introduction Originally from Texas, I arrived in the Northwest over four decades ago, took one look at the mountains, said “Bye, Yall!” and have been entranced with Southern Oregon wonders ever since. I sometimes wander but always return. I have a degree in Journalism and have written news, feature articles and opinion and humor columns for many current, retrofitted and defunct periodicals in Oregon over the years. I am also a multi-media artist, have done a little standup comedy, a little singing and a little acting. I have two sons and now three teenage grandsons, 17, 13, and 13 (twins) who I’ve been blessed to live near but who are now involved in a lot more important things than hanging out with Grandma. It’s like going through empty nest syndrome all over again: I’ve had to get a life…one more time.
