Looking at my World from a Different Place

About Miss Pelican

“I write, I cook, I drum.” — Miss Pelican.

Miss Pelican is an essayist, short story writer, poet, photographer, and occasional artist 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, art-making, cooking, really bad Japanese poetry and once-in-a-blue-moon sonnets.  She is a former contributing writer at The Soul Food Cafe.

Miss Pelican’s interest include archetypal literary criticism, historical research, art therapy, music therapy, comparative religion, natural history, astronomy, church history, hymnody and worship, percussion instruments, holistic health practices, classic Rock-and-Roll, cookbooks and experimentation in the kitchen.  She hangs out at drum circles with her darbuka.   She would rather read a book than do housekeeping.

Miss Pelican’s perch is on an ancient sand dune near the eastern rim of the Pacific Ocean which is rapidly and regrettably being overrun by Silicon Beach hipsters– but that’s a rant for another day.
