“I have the deepest affection for intellectual conversations. The ability to just sit and talk. About love, about life, about anything, about everything. To sit under the moon with all the time in the world, the full-speed train that is our lives slowing to a crawl. Bound by no obligations, barred by no human limitations. To speak without regret or fear of consequence.To talk for hours and about what’s really important in life.”


I love the broad smile of a dog, the shape of a square and a really good story. I am a Post-It Note addict who cherishes quiet moments with lavender lattes, frosted cupcakes and a mystery novel on a rainy day.

I have sat and spoken with Dr. Watson at 221b Baker St. in London, discovered Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox amongst the redwoods of California, and stood in the footprints of Charlie Chaplain while waiting to dine in the company of Muppets.

Professionally, I have sewn clothing for imaginary characters, historical figures, and larger-than-life animals. I am now a writer, creator, and organizer.

I currently live in the Pacific Northwest amongst the evergreen, with a 45mph couch potato (retired Greyhound) and a chatty tabby cat who gives excellent advice.

I have many favorite quiet endeavours.

Welcome to my blog.


About: Quiet Endeavours

Welcome to a blog about the simple things in life–sometimes told in a complicated, jumbled, and creative way–but always honestly expressed with a big heart.

It was created with good intentions and a sprinkle of imagination following many determined years of experimentation.

Posts are intended to not only entertain and broaden smiles, but to hold true to three things I value in life: education, exploration, and imagination.

This blog is written for those like-wired lovers of all the little endeavors and discoveries in life that bring us great joy.
