Family & Relationships

Swimming in satisfaction

On a bassoon, a Big Fish and change of course.


All who enter here

Unearthing the memories of love and loss contained in the family cabin.

Places, spaces and landscapes of home

Wrestling with belonging between the lure of two continents.


My own time

Giving thanks for the opportunity of commuting.

A sauna in every snowstorm

Savoring the variable pleasures of home among the Great Lakes.



On leaving home to find home.

Of no state at all

Contemplating the adventures of a cousin found at sea.


The weight of history

Looking back at small town family origins in Ohio.

City girl, small town

From concrete California to Little House on the Prairie in Colorado.


In search of mishigami

A story about how a lake brings a daughter, her father and her grandfather together.
