I'm an observer--of mood, light, color, tone, people and relationships. Sensitive, creative, and rational, I can experience a moment from many different perspectives.

We do not see things as they are; we see things as we are.

-- Anais Nin

Compost Studios is the place I reduce, reuse, and recycle my life experiences through art, poetry, photography, and essays. I'm a ruminator, and my goal here is to be thoughtful and open in personal expression and meet others who appreciate the value of life's small moments and big ideas.

We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection.

— Anaïs Nin

I've worked professionally as a writer most of my life and have been blogging since 2005.  The first blog at this URL, V-Grrrl in the Middle, was begun when I was living as an expat in Belgium. In 2008, I returned to the U.S. and now live in Virginia.
