About Me

Lots of labels could describe me: mom, stepmom, wife, minister, spiritual companion, singer, Texan….

I love to read, sing, play my flute, and encourage spiritual growth. I meditate, sometimes zen-like, sometimes with poetry; practice yoga; and enjoy walks in the neighborhood or around the lake.

My husband and I live alone now that our children are on their own, mostly in different cities: San Diego, CA; Kawasaki, Japan; and Austin, TX. It’s always a delight when we get to see them. Austin is our home base.

A few of my favorite things at the moment:

singer Carrie Newcomer; documentary Chasing Ice; plus Tapestry Singers and our small group Loose Threads; The Bakery Jam (amateur musicians who jam together once a week); and travel!

      I live in Austin now, but went to graduate school in Dallas and currently work in Houston. Each city unique and interesting.

    love your blog, Kathleen E. My sister, Beth Williamson, wanted me to let you know that Stuart Williamson died last Friday. They attended church with you in the Woodlands. The Thoreau Woods UU Church has details about the memorial service on their website. Thank you.

      I just published a blog about Stuart. Thank you for contacting me this way and by phone today. I did have a chance to speak with Beth this afternoon. Condolences to the numerous extended family and friends.
