An Introduction

While primarily a teacher and a Hospice administrator, in terms of “work,” Joan has been a journal keeper. Those journals have grown to become sketch books, including drawings and photographs. Over the years she has become a maker of things, objects in cloth and wood, gardens of living things, meals and pieces of clothing, drawings and paintings. She started as a musician in her youth, sang with choral groups for many years, played the guitar and sang with children daily when she was at Catlin Gabel. In her 60’s, she returned to practicing and renewed her love of the piano.

Joan’s work ranges from journals and poetry to essays and collections of others’ work for memorization and contemplation.  This blog is a continuation of those interests.

One thought on “An Introduction

  1. What a good idea! Be sure that I am going to read all you have written for two reasons: a) to get to know you better and b) to get out of the sad atmosphere we are in. Listening every day of refugees who have no place to go and people being drown in an effort to go to a safer place does not leave much space for joy. At personal and family level we are fine, trying to maintain good communication among us and not loose hope for a better future.
