What do I want to learn more about?

The human heart – 

            how it love

how it beats

           how it breaks

            how it heals

            how it opens

            how it hardens

            how it swells

            how it stretches

            how it stops

            how it adapts

            how it forgives

            how it encircles

            how it reaches 

for the holy.

How my heart has been able to hold

so much more than I thought possible.

I am a freelance writer and write regularly for The Bakersfield Californian, Give Us This Day, and America Magazine. I have recently retired from a position in a state prison library, which inspired my book "Overdue: A Dewey Decimal System of Grace", which was released by Give Us This Day on August 15, 2019.
