When Caregiver Becomes the Patient

June 9, 2019

Those of you who know me well know that the last two years have been a medical nightmare for me.  The good news is there is light at the end of that tunnel.  A surgery in my future.

Since caregiving has become a big part of my life again, although in a reverse roll, the book I wrote in 2014 has reclaimed my attention.  Being a semi-invalid has caused me to relish activities that were once at the bottom of my TO DO list.

I am delighted to show you my new and improved website.  One I can actually be proud of. Take a look.  Click on the link below. I ask you to hold my hand, but don’t rub it . . .

Maui-Inspired Poetry

September 19, 2015

I wrote a lot of poetry during the years that I was a caregiver. It was a way of expressing emotions too deep to reach my lips or my voice. My newer poems, however, are verses that I shout out loud at gatherings in Lahaina, Wailuku and most recently Makawao.

The Maui Live Poet Society is putting together an anthology. Some of my poems, I hope, will be dancing their way through those pages. In the mean time, I will be sharing those Hawaiian-inspired poems with my creative friends back in Arizona soon.Kihei sunset 2015

Caregiving Like It Is

February 2, 2015

Honest caregiver talk Part 2 hits home.  Listen to this chat to overcome that isolated, overwhelmed feeling. Rebecca asks such probing questions.  I told it all.  Try to forget what has changed.  Don’t stew about the future.  Focus on the golden moments.  An inspiring estate sale around Mt. Tabor Park.  An artist who left behind an ink and white paper drawing.
