Welcome, Word-Weavers

Though I write in many forms, I am first of all a poet; which means my job is to see and sing the connections between things. The spider's web is a delicious image for this and for the wonder of something newly made from old patterns, like the sentences writers spin each day.

The strength of my web comes from family, friends, words, music, dreams, mountains, and the joy of making.

Think about the life you are spinning and how you could write about its different strands.
