Introduction (Jan. 2011) Just prior to 2010, I challenged myself to be outdoors for sunrise every day for one year, beginning on Jan. 1. Not a morning person, I knew it would be a significant challenge. I am now 50 years old, an empty nester, mother of four launched children. I have become a writer, with about 70 published articles in addition to my 365 blog posts. I am also slowly writing my way through my first full length book - about the life of Rachel Field, author, poet, and former owner of our family's summer home on an island off the coast of Maine. When the spirit moves me to reflect upon the writing life, the natural world, family relationships, the journey of life, love, and laughter, I will get up before the sun, watch the rising of day, and record my continuing odyssey. (Dec 2019) As 2020 approaches, my 10-year anniversary blog project is underway on my website. The Rachel Field book will be published in May of 2021. My writing and teaching careers both continue to expand.
