Looking at my World from a Different Place

About Miss Pelican

“I write,  I cook, I grow flowers.” — Miss Pelican.

Miss Pelican is an essayist, short story writer, poet, photographer, and painter who spends a lot of time observing the world.   This on-line journaling project is a way for her to explore her observations through stories, essays, photography, painting , drumming, cooking, penning really bad Japanese poetry and once-in-a-blue-moon sonnets.

Miss Pelican’s interests include archetypal literary criticism, historical research, art therapy, music therapy, comparative religion, natural history, astronomy, church history, hymnody and worship, percussion instruments, alternative healing practices, classic Rock-and-Roll, gardening, cookbooks and experimentation in the kitchen.  She hangs out at drum circles with her darbuka and is recently returned to her first love: painting.    She would rather read a book than do housekeeping.

Miss Pelican’s perch is on an ancient alluvial plain near the eastern rim of the Pacific Ocean.
