Welcome to my blog, The TravelingLIGHT: a place for tending heart and soul, for sharing wisdom, joy and inspiration. I am a seeker, a lover of words and a believer in the power of personal and communal healing and awakening through transparent, authentic storytelling. I am also a lifelong writer, whose career incarnations have included arts & entertainment reporter, columnist and greeting card writer, as well as an interfaith minister, wedding officiant and death midwife. These are my tales and my poems, from my journey to travel light, spread the light and be the light. May they be fuel for your own perfectly imperfect path and reflections of your own TravelingLIGHT.
