Please don’t make me get up today.
Don’t make me face the drama or lack of
Don’t ask me to be of use to others
Don’t look for wise food choices from me
Don’t think that just because I know better I will do better
Just for today let me wallow in a state of nothingness
Let me neglect myself and by doing naught for myself do nothing for others
I have taken a deep breath and girded my loins
Thank you for this day
May I be open to all the opportunities that come my way

I am a freelance writer and photographer who enjoys living close to the action in Knoxville, Tennessee. In the 1980s I created and published Zoo Connections, an international networking publication for non-animal zoo departments. Jobs over the years include working with the developmentally disabled, night front desk at a motel, assistant in development and membership at the NC Zoological Society, Customer Relations manager at Regal Entertainment Group, census enumerator, concessions at University of Tennessee, house cleaner, substitute teacher, sitter for children, houses, and pets. Freelance work at Knoxville News Sentinel and KnoxZine. Contributor to A Knoxville Christmas (2008,2007), and articles for the North Carolina Zoo website. Interested in anything except humorless people and politics. Enjoy reading, Scrabble, Catan, camping. I hold dear family (human and animal), friends, Kenya, Sunset Beach, NC and the Keys.
