Pole, Pole (pronounced pole-ay, pole-ay) means Slowly, Slowly in Swahili, and was something our guides regularly reminded us of as we made our way up Mt. Kilimanjaro. Throughout our hike, I kept thinking ‘I just have to put one foot in front of the other,’ especially the night of our final summit push. Writing is not unlike hiking: it’s a journey that requires one step, or one word, at a time, and when a hike is complete, another is always waiting.
I’m a writer, educator, avid hiker, and cat lover. Here you’ll find information on my current and past writing projects, a little bit about myself, and a way to contact me, as I make my way forward one step at a time.
