The mist-skin of clouds descends
To touch and be touched
Everything needs touch
Even the sky
Judi Smolker began as a sandy-footed ballerina and butterfly catcher on the coastline of Los Angeles. She grew to a cracked nail polish yogi and local poet. After graduating UCLA with a degree in Anthropology, she scored a sweet sales job at a yoga studio and shortly after became certified to teach. She is now residing in west Orange County where she teaches, aides at a Physical Therapy clinic, and takes care of two fabulous dogs.
