About the Author

Nancy Nason Guss is a retired educator of 37 years. Prior to retiring, she was a principal at two education centers for five and a half years, an assistant principal at a middle and high school for 11 and a half years, and a middle school language arts teacher for 20 years. She holds a Master’s of Education degree in Educational Leadership and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communication/English Education, both from the University of South Florida, Tampa. Nancy begins each day in meditation and prayer surrounded by the life within her garden and in her back yard. The playful antics and visits from the beautiful birds and critters have inspired these stories, as have memories and experiences from her childhood and travels. She tries to find, celebrate, honor, and recognize each person and our earth as divine creations and gifts from God, and hopes to bring that deep down contented joy, peace, and love to all through remembering all the simple blessings and pleasures we enjoy together on this planet that we all share.
