A few years ago, after I retired from 34+ years in education, we decided to downsize and move to a rental townhouse, half the size of our house and a fraction of a garden. Now I garden with a dozen or so plants in the ground around the townhouse and lots of containers. And we created a small native plant garden at the edge of the woods right behind us.
After blogging about my garden for the past 13 years, I have decided to open it up to be so much more. I still enjoy talking about the life lessons I learn from nature around me, but now I am pursuing my passion for writing and creating beyond the garden.
I thank my inner child, Donna Marie, for getting me back to my creative roots. For encouraging me to continue to create artsy photos, paint rocks, color and pushing me to try so much more. Now I consider myself not just a writer, but a storyteller. A creative. And I am excited to walk this new path as I find my new purpose and passion.
I hope you will join me as I walk this creative’s path!
