Stretching his hand out to catch the stars, he forgets the flowers at his feet. — Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832), English jurist, philosopher & legal reformer
Welcome to my messy life! I am lucky to live in a beautiful little Wisconsin village with the hubby I grew up with (we married at 16 & 17!). We have 3 lovely grown daughters, sons-in-laws, 6 adored grandkids and countless extended family and friends. By day I’m an administrative supervisor where I’m fortunate to work with some of the best people in the world. I turn into a pumpkin immediately upon coming home at night and therefore cannot leave my beloved cinders before duty calls the next morning. Our house is usually crazy with a parade of characters coming, going, and sometimes staying. There’s never a shortage of people to love or things to organize and share. I enjoy reading and writing, organizing, holding babies, drooling over grandkids, cooking, creating, homemaking, finding old 50 cent things, flowers, the very holiness of living, and simple poetry you don’t forget. I love happy greens, like the worn green velvet on my art room chairs. It beautifully catches the colorful, mundane, and sticky stuff of life: coffee, glitter, ice cream, glue, and cat hair too.
