It has been a minute since I posted here, and I still keep running into lizards everywhere I go. There have been many transitions for me this school year, and the processing for them has been all-consuming. Moving out of 15 years in administration back to the classroom and other hybrid roles has left me… Continue reading Promises to Keep
I was raised between the kitchen and dining room table, flitting between cutting board and stove. Learning the lessons of taste over the chopping of onion and garlic. The transmutation of anchovy into love as it melts into tomato sauce. The spoken prayer after sliding cookies into the oven. I know that the magic of… Continue reading Giving Thanks

It's nearly the end of National Poetry Month and today is World Book Day (yay!). Though I haven't been a strong presence in my actual poetry community, I am trying to remain present in the online community. I have been writing daily, and reading as much as time permits with my busy work-mom-life schedule. So it… Continue reading Magic, naturally.
The boys are my poetry. All the cliches come to mind about time and growth; they are all true. In a short 48 hours, I will have a nine year old, and in only nine short weeks, I will have an 8th grader. #thestruggleisreal #lifeisbeautiful
Eat the Words…
I want to take a moment to review a friend's chapbook of poetry. I love her work and style, and it always delights me to be able to review her poetry! Cati Porter is a daring poet and creator of spaces, both physical and digital, in which to collect and showcase poets/poetry. We met over… Continue reading Eat the Words…
