My interests might find me behind a camera, an acetylene torch, spending a day with a legislator, at the farmers market, or with my nose in a guidebook mapping an adventure. Usually, I’m responding to thoughtful student writings and preparing ways to get students to think about writing.
Most days find this mid-life mother of teenagers, behind the wheel of the mommy-taxi, revising writings, volunteering in the community, figuring out how to prepare a healthy meal everyone can or will eat, or shooing our urban chickens from our kitchen door.
I am a mother, writer, traveler, wife, thyroid cancer survivor and writing instructor. This blog is my place to share and connect with you.
Why unpackedwriter? Whether we travel across town or across borders, we pack stuff along: clothes, thoughts, photos, unfinished business. But, invariably, when we reach a landing-place, whether geographically or philosophically or both, we unpack and consider what we’ve brought with us in a different light.
This blog is dedicated to those who know when its time for unpacking and translating moments that matter.
And the traveling is easier when you meet people along the way. Won’t you join me?
As a writer and photographer I spend a lot of time writing, editing, photographing and creating content. If you are interested in reposting something, please ask first. (I would most likely be thrilled!)
