I am an interfaith minister, a poet, and a budding artist, who encounters the Divine in all of nature, of which we are part. I have been blessed to learn from indigenous spiritual teachers for the past 30 years. I retired from 30+ years of hospice nursing in February of 2021. I have since been involved in the Charter for Compassion and am a co-lead in their Environment Sector, which I view as part of my ministry. Mother Earth has given so much to me. I am trying to return the favor as I walk the spiral and learn from all of her children. Most of all, I am very much a work in progress.
