Welcome to Grace Under Pressure!


Thus begins a little experiment in gathering together some of my favorite things into one place.

Those “favorite things” include: Tea, Parenting, English and Scottish Country Dance; a gracious Home life; Baroque music; Flowers! Times punctuated with rich Reading, purposeful Writing and lively and earnest Conversation; the Beautiful, Good and True.

Does my life incorporate all of these things, all of the time? Well, no!

However, I am captivated by the search, the will to learn, to work, to call others to join in finding ways to help make my life, and the lives of those around me, a little more lovely each day.

Grace Under Pressure will be, I trust, an ongoing conversation about how to approach the large and small pressures of everyday life as did the wise woman of old: “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future.” {Proverbs 31:25}

Come join me, will you?

With kindest regards,
