Following my Heart

A friend once told me my life resembles a modern romance novel. When a milestone birthday approached (I won’t say which one), I decided to quit my job as a writer for an educational software company, and fulfilled a lifelong dream of backpacking through Europe. I met my Irish husband on a ferry in Scotland and left sunny San Diego for the weather-challenged climate of Ireland.

I spent hours trolling along the shorelines on the Old Head of Kinsale in County Cork, filling my pockets with little gems that seemed to be there for me to find. They rested in jars, tins, boxes, again waiting...

Two children later, we re-crossed the Atlantic for America. While I wrote picture books and MG novels in between working as school librarian, doing laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, watching volleyball games and track meets, doing yoga, going to the gym, etc, and wondered if I am still the heroine of this story, the sea glass waited patiently. In the dark.

Until my son bought me a piece of wire-wrapped sea glass for Mother's Day, illuminating a light within me. And I now create sea glass jewelry and ornaments to share with others.
