Reader, Writer, Student, Poet, Aspiring Liturgist.

I invite you to join me on a journey of spiritual exploration. The spirit of these pages is mystical, earth-based, embodied, feminist Judaism. Wrenaissance Reflections are my ideas, my responses to the divine in any form, expressed as poetry, photography, prayers, blessings, essays…and who knows what else.

The “Wren”aissance part of my site name comes from its days as a nature blog, named for the Carolina Wrens that nested in my garage and yard when I lived in Virginia. Wrens are wonderful birds – cute, inquisitive, and right at home around people. I had wrens nesting in that garage two years, and they quickly taught me that they could find more ways in to it than I could ever cover up or seal off. For those two years I saw the babies fledge and practice flying around the garage. I found that they left all too soon, and when they did, the garage was oh-so-empty … Although they found other nesting sites in subsequent years, it was always a joy to come across the young families out learning to fly, with mom and pop wren keeping careful watch over their offspring.

Wrenaissance has been on the web with various URLs since the mid-1990s, and wrenaissance.com was born as a domain in 1999. It has moved around among hosts, servers, and platforms, and as a result there are gaps in the archives. Although the subject and format has changed, it remains always a reflection of who I am.
