Seeking My Best Self

trying to make sense of my life – and lose some weight

The Mind Behind the Mumblings

D43P3808_01I decided the world didn’t have enough gratuitous eye-rolling opportunities, so I began this blog, the point of which is to spend a ridiculous amount of time angsting over one thing or another. Or maybe that’s just the result.

In real life (why do we persist in believing that our internal imaginings aren’t ‘real’?) I am a fine-art photographer. This came about more than ten years ago, when I picked up a professional camera for the first time and began winning both amateur and professional awards. My ego thus bolstered, I opened a photography studio, and discovered the truth of the phrase “starving artist” – though I persevered and now enjoy a loyal client base.

I’ve also been a freelance writer since 1979, and in 2012 earned an MFA in Writing from Pacific University. In addition, I’m a Benedictine Oblate.

Links to books and other items in Amazon are AFFILIATE links. That means, if you’re as interested as I am in a book, video, etc, and click through and purchase said item, I get a pittance of a commission, and some day all these teensy commissions may add up to more than $5, in which case Amazon will actually credit me some cash.
