My Work in the World
Writer | Blogger |Vegan Lifestyle Educator
“Writing is the painting of the voice.”- Voltaire
On this website you will find my main, diverse blog. I blog as an avenue of expression because I am curious, because I love words, and because the desire to write never leaves me. Take a peek, and you will find mostly articles on the human experience, and some on other topics. As an avid reader of many subjects, I also write a monthly book review of both fiction and nonfiction books I find inspiring, educational, or life-changing. Check it out!
My vegan blog VEGoutwithVilms exists to encourage and teach others how to eat healthy, nourishing vegan cuisine, and how to live a vegan lifestyle. I share my recipes – some are from childhood that I have recreated into vegan deliciousness. My e-book, Vegan Green Smoothies by Vilms: 35 Easy, Nutritious and Delicious Recipes for Ultimate Health and Vitality, demonstrates how to make changes in your life to improve your health.
What I Love About Life (if anyone wants to know)…
I view the myriad of life’s experiences as learning opportunities, and I question everything deeply. In addition to the above, I love writing at coffee shops, hiking in the mountains, running, dancing, conversations with friends, reading, music, and admiring art. I’m a crafter, gardener and woodworker. Exploring rocks my world. As a lover of nature, I am easily mesmerized by the ocean or the mountains and am lucky that I have had many opportunities to visit both. Well traveled, I’ve discovered that all people desire two things: to love and to find their creative expression to share with the world. And lastly, I adore my cozy home in Colorado where I live with a remarkable partner, an extremely creative teenager, and several comical animals.
