All that glitters isn’t gold
or so I’m told.
Perhaps a sight to behold
but let the truth be told
don’t let your soul be sold
deception is oh, so cold.
Assess and control and
don’t withhold but uphold
integrity as a stronghold.
Rise up and be bold
core values as good as gold.

A gander at me –
I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.
My writing and creative endeavors can be found at my blogs, BrewNSpew (Coffee-break Scuttlebutt) and PoetryPalette (Poetry, a seasonal state of mind), where I have gathered a following of kindred souls who share my passion for writing.
I am the author of two books, Seasoned Delights, A Haiku Collection; and Mama, me and Mother Nature. I am also a published author at Spillwords Press.

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.” –
