After retiring from a long career in nonprofit operations management (including Health Care, Education and Mental Health Services), I've now created a heart centered vocation as a Forest Therapy Guide and Embodied Awareness Coach.  When I'm not guiding Walks, I can often be found participating in local meditation groups, playing chess, taking long solo walks in the woods and writing down whatever comes to mind.  A brief example follows …

What must I do to be at home in the world?
Perhaps…there must be a time when I am here
as though absent, gone beyond words into the woven shadows
of the grass and the drifting darknesses
of leaves shaking in the wind, and beyond
the weariness of engines and of my own heart,
my wrongs grown old unforgiven. It must be with me
as though my bones fade beyond thought
into the shadows that grow out of the ground
and I hear the silence of the dead tribes buried here
a thousand years ago ...
