Welcome to Write From the Soul!   

Retirement is sometimes viewed as a final phase in life. How sad is that? For me, it has been a new beginning, an opportunity to reinvent myself, to explore, to learn something new, and to live each and every moment of every day being mindfully present.

Where I was once driven by productivity, perfectionism and a need to always be in control, I now view these ‘miss takes’ as guideposts. I am continually guided away from what I call, ‘clutter’ and directed toward a more purposeful life. Consequently, an interesting thing has happened. I’ve lost myself in the flow of writing, cooking, and sipping fine wines. Along the way I discovered this:

Living through self-compassion is the path to greater purpose

As a writer, lover of wine, and all things related to delicious food, I have set off on an adventure to bring them all together in Soul Writing

I invite you to tag along and explore with me, delightful morsels, and soulful writing. Enjoy! 


Retirement has been many things but most of all it has been liberating.
