About Pam

When writing a bio, how does one truly answer the question: Who am I? I could say I write books and poetry, teach literature and writing courses part-time at a university and conduct writing and meditation workshops. I could add that I speak at conferences about my book, myself and other things. I travel on business and for fun, with my most recent ‘fun’ trips including a trek, river rafting adventure and jungle safari in Nepal, a vacation to Hawaii, a visit with my son and his wife in Canada, a whirlwind tour of New York City, a hike into the depths of the Grand Canyon; two 10-day silent meditation retreats just outside of Yosemite and Sun Valley, respectively; a 600-mile walk along the Camino through Spain; a romantic interlude in Costa Rica; and a bike tour of Croatia. I run, hike, bike, ski, garden and dance. I love life.

Or I could speak about how I feel—I’m happy, happier, I think, than I’ve ever been. I’m leading the life I’ve chosen, doing the things I love and being, for the most part, the person I want to be. I still, of course, have much to learn, do and become, but I’m excited about that, all of it.Author Page Top Photo

And I could write about who I’ve been—the mother of two incredible human beings, the former wife of a dear friend, the partner or former partner of some wonderful men who have added—and still add—joy and blessings to my life; the author of one published book and the soon-to-be author of two others; an educator, presenter, life coach and motivational speaker.

But no matter what I say, most of who I am still remains a mystery even to me, for it resides in the secret chambers of my heart; and even I have only occasional glimpses of it now and then—when I look into the eyes of my sons and see their goodness, for example, or when I dance or ski or laugh with the people—or pups—that I love; or when out in nature I feel the power and pulse of every living being within my soul. My greatest achievements are not my books or classes or titles or trips but the love I share with others and the desire I have to make a little bit of difference somehow in this whole, huge, turbulent, beautiful world.

  1. I wanted to put you one very little remark to help give many thanks once again for those unique basics you have shown on this page. It is quite seriously open-handed with you to make publicly precisely what a lot of folks would’ve sold as an e-book to help make some dough for their own end, principally now that you could have done it in the event you desired. Those principles as well acted like a easy way to fully grasp other individuals have the identical eagerness really like my personal own to know the truth significantly more pertaining to this matter.

  2. Thank you for your comments and for visiting my website. I hope my new book will in some way help all who read it, those who simply question and those seeking peace as they move at last past the pain of divorce, death or any parting of lives once joined.

    • Thanks so much for your comment. Actually my son did most of the artistic work on my website, following my general plans and, of course, using my text, etc. He passed this information on for you: The theme was created using a WordPress plugin known as Weaver II. It’s a great feature because it allows you to customize the general appearance of the theme, as well as the layout, fonts, widget areas, header and so forth. I would definitely recommend it to anyone using word press. It was very useful when designing your website.

    • I’m so glad you find my blog worth reading and my site worth visiting. Truly, the experiences of life—the pain as well as the joys—have brought me to this place of peace. I try to view all people, events and even setbacks in my life as opportunities to learn and grow and become the person I want to be. Of course, I still have moments when I have to remind myself that peace is what I want more than anything else. Whenever I feel gratitude for all that the Universe offers me, I’m happy. Awareness, appreciation and awe are the three cornerstones of my life. All my love and blessings to you!
