Why Fleeting Temples?

“What if these are the true dwelling of the holy, these fleeting temples we make when we say, “Here, have my seat,” “Go ahead––you first,” “I like your hat.”

Because it’s so easy to miss the magic on the ordinary. Because I wanted to have a way to share more of the thoughts and experiences behind the writing, and to connect more directly with my community of readers, outside of the unstable and sometimes (let’s face it), unpleasant platforms of social media. Because more and more I feel that community-building is the way to navigate the challenge of living in a quickly-changing world. When we join together—-even on the page—-we slow down and have an opportunity to remember who we are.

I’ll share story, meditations on living toward simplicity in a complicated world, craft-tidbits that come from a deeper look at my own poems, or at poems I love by other poets. I also like to take a lot of photographs of my life here in Coastal California, so there will be some of that, too.

I hope you’ll come along for the ride!

Are we living inside a poem? A place to consider the altars of the ordinary.
