“So often we spend any spare moment stuck to a screen on social media or our news feed. Embrace and schedule time for boredom and being disconnected….Embrace the void by appreciating a sunrise or sunset, reading a book, or just staring off into space. Studies show our most creative moments happen during boredom.” ~Dr. Andrew Weil
Throughout my career, I've worked as a book production editor, travel magazine editor, features writer, and weekly newspaper columnist.
My award-winning lifestyles features and essays have appeared in many national magazines and anthologies, including Newsweek, Reader's Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, Writer's Digest, Victoria, Better Homes & Gardens, Bella Grace, and more. My weekly Sunday "Life Lines" column ran for 14 years in The Daily Tribune (Royal Oak, MI) and won a First Place (Local Columns) award from the Michigan Press Association.
My essay collection, Writing Home, includes 93 previously published columns and essays focusing on parenthood and family life.

Thanks, Karen! I hope you get a chance to see the site on a larger screen (other than a cell phone). There’s more material that doesn’t show up on cell phones.
