Born and raised in Tanzania 75 years ago, I was blessed with big open skies, wide wild spaces filled with animals, nightly sounds of drums and lions and brilliantly sparkled stars.  Nature became my sanctuary and the place where to this day I find solace and peace.

During the young adult years of living in Greece, my ancestral home, I received the blessings of blazing clear crystalline light and transparent cerulean seas.  Beauty became my muse!

And Beauty has been a constant companion of mine since moving to the United States in my early 20s.  I feel happy spending time in nature and taking photographs of her detailed exquisite expressions of Being.

My fascination with words comes from studying the Greek philosophers.  It is interesting how combining letters we are able to form words, sentences and paragraphs, exhibiting distinct ways of seeing, understanding and the making of meaning - particularly through poetry.

As for art, it is a recent discovery, having fun with all kinds of materials, from colored pencils, to markers, aerosols, paints, pastels, images, fabric, etc.  I am a kid in a candy store, marveling at the creative impulse that lies in each and everyone one of us, regardless of age!

At this point and time, I feel content and greatly grateful, especially for my family - my cherished daughters and son-in-laws, beloved grandkids, devoted siblings and treasured friends; for using my mind - hopefully - helpfully and imaginatively, especially after receiving a Ph.D. at the age of 48 and teaching Consciousness-based courses and workshops at a couple of Universities and spiritual centers; for living in the beautiful Northwest and for the gift of being alive on our dearest precious planet during these challenging times.


I definitely feel blessed

This heart is overflowing with a profound Love for Goodness

For the way Mystery keeps unfolding my Life
