About me

Location Gibsonville, NC, United States
Introduction I grew up wandering woods and fields in Connecticut and wrote my first poem at the age of five. After attending a one-room schoolhouse, I spent a number of years studying and writing about biology, and a number more teaching nonverbal children how to communicate. I live on a small organic farm in Gibsonville, NC, with my husband and one Abyssinian cat. I began writing tanka in 2008 and find it to be the perfect vehicle for exploring the relationship between the landscapes that lie within and without.
Interests Poetry, tanka, science, nature, cosmology, evolution, ecology, biodiversity, the fate of the Earth, Buddhism, Gaia, Indra's net
