born in Chicago to musician parents
started writing poetry and stories as a child
had a good ear for music, loved to sing and dance
truth-seeking quiet girl
turned free spirit in the age of
peace love art spirituality

met my musician poet guy in college
got married later
still loved to sing and dance
had 2 extraordinary kids — we were all artists
we excelled in truth and silliness
creating art, communicating

now I have 2 homes — Chicago and Nashville
and a granddaughter who excels in miracles
we love to sing and dance
and life is a poem
music is everywhere
it’s all about joy

. . . and so I write . . .
