I have the joy of living in Reno, Nevada but am able to spend several months each year in Palm Desert, California. The beauty of the Reno, (we are forty miles from Lake Tahoe) the drive down the I-395 corridor, through the changing moods of the Eastern Sierra, Owens Valley and the Mojave Desert, and the wonder of the Coachella Valley never ceases to inspire.
Currently, I am compiling and editing a volume of 50-60 poems that have been nurtured, for the most part, by the variety of seasons and environments in these areas of Nevada and California.
It is my hope that, within each poem, you will discover a message to nourish you-- body, mind and spirit.
