Stepping off the Treadmill


Welcome to my blog of adventures and ideas.

I’m a writer, theatre creator, calligrapher and teaching artist. If you are looking for my professional side, check my website at This blog is different. It’s more personal. It’s about my journeys. There’s some travel, some explorations, some recipes. You’ll see it’s divided into categories for places, creative ideas and writing projects, and recipes. That pretty well sums me up.

My husband Tim Wynne-Jones is an award winning author, editor and teacher. You can check out his website at We’ve been together since 1974, and there have been a lot of adventures over the years.

In 2011, we left our regular lives to travel in the U.K. and Europe for a year. We were asking questions about who we are as artists and re-kindling our sense of curiosity about the world. That trip began this blog. It’s evolved since then into an irregular of journal with personal stories, a blog on and off the road. It’s an exploration of ideas. It’s a food column with recipes. It’s a blog on and off the road.

I’m till asking questions. Still searching. Please feel free to come along. I appreciate hearing from you.
