Almost There

Almost There! I made 17 videos in October and 14 in November, with only the help of my sound editor. Contrast that in the years of Late Bloomer Show, with 20 episodes per year. I’m clocking 60 hours a week between editing, traveling, gardening and social media to bring you up to date on all […]

It is my passion and the fuel that feeds me, both literally and spiritually. I am an […]

| May 14, 2018 | Reply

My frankly remarkable balancing act began in late January when I got a call offering me a part in a play. I wasn’t even driving yet, after the injury I sustained on Schweitzer Mountain on Christmas Eve.

There’s something about planting seeds. You’ve probably heard this one: if a woman remembered how painful childbirth is, she wouldn’t have a second baby. No matter how devastating losing a crop to weather, disease or pest, you always want to plant more seeds. If you’re able. I’ve been instructed to rest. With my right arm […]

Home Ten Days and Off Again!

| June 29, 2017 | Reply

I was home ten days and off again for the Southeast. I had dreamed of making a trip to Europe to meet Late Bloomer fans. And that actually happened! I left May 21 and returned home on June 18th, with a stop in New York and upper Michigan at the end. I filmed a garden nearly […]
