Although I had been writing prose for several years, in the Spring of 2020 I turned to poetry as a way to cope with the increasing anxieties and limitations caused by the rising Covid-19 pandemic. At first I tried to write poetry in more traditional styles (think Robert Frost) and enjoyed numerous writing challenges on WordPress. When several strands of my life converged, my writings became more spiritual and liturgical. At that point I consolidated my blog sites into one and re-named it Wrestling with Angels.

Perhaps one of the driving factors behind Wrestling with Angels is having reached the age of 77. While I certainly hope to live longer, I want to acknowledge and celebrate reaching what I like to call Wise Old Womanhood.

I hope I am wise, or at least much wiser than I was. If my writings, meditations and prayers on the meaning of life speak to you, please let me know. I am curious and interested in the perspectives of others and welcome comments and other points of view. If you do comment, please do it with respect for differences of culture, experience and belief. Thank you and may you experience blessings and peace.
