I am a later-in-life mom: My Guy and I adopted a newborn baby girl in 2009, when I was 45 years old. Little Bird is of Vietnamese and African-American descent and is the pint-sized love of my life.
I am a recovering lawyer: long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I went to law school, practiced law, and hated it. So I stopped doing that.
I am an unapologetic Episcopalian: I love the smells and bells of the liturgy, without the guilt.
I am a Christian contemplative: I have practiced centering prayer, a method of silent meditation drawn from the Christian tradition, for over ten years. Religion is now no longer merely a belief system for me. It is an inner awareness of God’s unconditional love for myself and for the entire human family. We are all invited to the banquet — no exceptions.
