When I'm not writing or reading, I want to be hiking, hanging out with my family & friends, and swimming in the pool of social media. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I follow back.
There are too many books I love in too many ways to have a "favorites" list, but if I was shipwrecked and could only save two books they would be "The Crock of Gold" and "Earth Abides". These are the books that speak most deeply to me about what it means to be human.
A wise 4th grade teacher told me the secret to living well is to follow the Golden Rule and to treat each day as Day 1 of the rest of your life. I strive for that because I believe it's the key to happiness.
