I'm a teacher-dreamer, stubborn enough to keep going until I make a difference in this world.  While I'm at it, I want to eat well, live well, travel and learn to wring joy out of every day I have breath on this earth.

I believe huge changes start with small steps taken consistently.  I believe each and every day can be elevated if we make time for play and creativity, foolish as it may feel. I believe music, art, beauty, love and healthy community are as essential as food, water and air for a fulfilled life. I believe that the traumas we suffer in life don't define who we are. I believe we can change and heal. I'm living proof of that.

I hope this blog inspires you.  If your past was challenging, I believe the best years are ahead of you.  If your past was pretty fantastic, your future can get even better! Here's to progress!

Onward  and upward!
