About me

Location Maine, United States
Introduction Just prior to 2010, I challenged myself to be outdoors for sunrise every day for one year, beginning on Jan. 1, 2010. Not being a morning person, I knew it would be a significant change in my life. I had a lot of changes being thrown at me that year, but this change was in my control. My morning ritual was such a dramatic success on so many levels that I have decided to carry on, at least occasionally. I am now 50 years old, an empty nester, mother of four launched children. I have also become a writer, with about 70 published articles in 2010 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.
