About Me

Twenty years ago I asked a Tarot card reader what would I be doing when I was 50. She replied, “I see you doing something so wildly creative, it defies a job title.” Only recently did I realize that was a slick way of saying, “I have no idea of what you’ll be doing.” But that prediction kept me charging ahead to the fifties with zeal and anticipation. Now that the future is today, I’m ready for anything!

A Place Where Ideas Can Grow

Mike and his dad are finishing assembling my studio. It was the first thing on his list, even before the kitchen and bathroom renovation. It’s as important to Mike as it is to me that I have alone time. I don’t take it personally. I can be hard to live with when I'm writing.

He has thoughtfully planned it and located it, under a tree which I call the Whomping Willow, on the north side of the house so I won’t bake in the sun.

I love this idea from The Artful Blogger by Suerae Stein at Red Barn Artworks because I’m always looking for storage ideas that make sense to me. 

A pre-fab garden shed is all it is, but it's my studio, my alone place, and it's mine, mine, mine. 


  1. Wish I had time for more "gardening" Susan. So much more creative cultivation I'd like to do ... I keep telling myself, "In five years, you'll have more time." I hope.

  2. I hear you, Dan. If you had the time, what is the project that you would cultivate? Susan
