It is what it is


I am a writer, poet, artist, traveler.   I love to be with family and friends (old and new) and my blog is about all of it.


I was born in Cookeville Tennessee in 1947.  I have been married to Bill for 39 years.  We have two children.  Our beautiful daughter will be marrying a wonderful man in April.  Our son passed away in 1999 at the age of 23.  We are thankful for those 23 wonderful years.  A lot of my poetry and my art is a way of dealing with his death.  I hope to publish a book about the grief process and dealing with loss of a child by suicide.  When I have done that, I can go on to other things.

  1. I read your poem about your nephew and it tugged at me. Congratulations on your daughter's wedding! It sounds like fun to have 2 weddings.:) I have 2 daughters and neither are going to be married soon.:( I keep hoping they'll find someone. It's hard for women up here to find guys. They don't trust too many of them.:)
