“My writing comes out of living experience and the well of Continuum as an alive process of inner/outer engagement. Continuum has given me the courage to write from the deep expression of change, awareness and fluid forthcoming…

I don’t maintain a writing practice every day. I am only moved when the muse comes… I have learned to trust her. And usually she shows herself in a meeting with my body, my environment and the ways that I find meaning in life.”
