Select a reading from the categories below


I like to scratch around and explore scenes from everyday experience, examining these events for clarity and understanding. Themes will be varied from unsettling and mysterious to soothing and spiritual. Some writing will be simply entertaining and humorous, sometimes satirical. Sensory details are my friends. I love to engage and cultivate them for a sensory, earthy experience. You will notice my “love affair” with the present tense. I use it at every opportunity. I love to take the reader back with me to allow a scene to unfold and to be experienced all over again. Of course, my perceptions and reflection may be different from that of each reader, who will bring his or her own background and tastes to this writing. I write for the purposes of discovering, amusing, entertaining, and simply sharing. My hope is that you will be inspired and delighted by some of what you find here. I have found that my two cats, Patches and Cokie, are great partners in the process of sensing, reflecting, and writing, thus the website title, Scratches, Purrs, and Gravy Treats.
