Thank You!

Thank you all so much for your kind words of encouragement and overflowing support for Pilgrims I Have Been these past few months.

My greatest hope was that by sharing these words, they would be a spark, a point of connection in someone else’s life. I’m so grateful to hear that it has met you where you are, and connected to your own experience in some way.

I’m also excited to announce that several of the poems in Pilgrims have been selected by the Oregon Poetry Association to appear in their next anthology! I look forward to sharing several other places these poems will go in the coming months.

As we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States, my prayer for us are these lines from “Table in the Wilderness”:

Let us keep our distance

From the castle-building and the silent stage.

Let us be the ones to watch

The two trees swaying in a cold wind,

To never number what we have been given.

Let us be the ones to open a table in our hearts

And say, “Welcome,”

And say, “Enough.”
