A writer first grown at Seattle Pacific University, I was the editorial intern at Image for two years. My own poetry and prose has been published in Image, Cultural Consent, Amethyst Review, Ruminate, and Ekstasis. A current MFA candidate, I write essays at the meeting place of word and being, the image and its attendant charge, risen heat that sends a word in time and place and body, whether on the salt-soaked shores of Gig Harbor or the monsoon-warm of Santa Fe - and the grace to see
God standing there.
I learn the rooms of his heart, its chambers and pathways, each breath an expanding tide that never leaves the blood unchanged. Maybe, until we are ready, we are left outside that cool, clear revelation of him, like rain just outside the door. But for now, we only breathe. And wait.
