Bit and Pieces

August 2011
When I started writing this blog, my goal was to use this space to explore writing about my work in early childhood education.  What I am discovering is that I need a space to nurture my own curiosity about writing and storytelling, sometimes about young children and their families, sometimes about teaching, and sometimes about a wider range of topics. 


I have been living in this world of early childhood education for over 30 years and I am inspired, maybe even driven to write about this work that I so love.

I have been pondering this quote:

“The cure for boredom is curiosity.  There is no cure for curiosity.”   Dorothy Parker

and this verse:

I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!
2 Cor. 6:11-13

I am a teacher, program director, wife, mother, drummer, reader,writer, lover of paper, quilts, yarn.  I am discovering the art of preparing food to nourish body and soul and, if the weather cooperates, I will grow some of that food in my own garden.  Most of all, it is my hope and prayer that I can listen well, to stay open to God’s calling, and to live the life for which I have been created.

  1. Hi,
    Just wanted to tell you after enjoying your blog, I was curious about the headline photo of the quilt. After reading your bio, I see that we have much in common. Did you make this quilt? It makes me want to head up to my sewing room on this fabulous day called a “snow day”. I think I will dig into some pink scraps and maybe make a little something for the month of all things hearts and pink. I am also going to send a link for your blog to my daughter who works for an early intervention agency. Thanks. ~Theresa
