The stories we tell ourselves create the way we experience our life and our world. Emotions are formed not just by the messages of our senses, but by the meaning we give to them.

I have degrees in English literature and Clinical social work. I’m a retired psychotherapist and current fiction writer.
The stories I’ve read, watched and heard from others have changed my life. My own life is an evolving saga.
I’ll share my stories with you. Please share yours with me and join me on the adventure.
