Margaret Rosche (Maggie) is a retired public health social worker, educator, trainer and consultant from Buffalo, N.Y. She moved to Florida as a snowbird in 1998 after her own life-altering illness to care for her husband and father, both stroke victims. She stayed in sunny Florida after completing her caretaking odyssey, having found a new home, satisfying work, and stimulating companionship. She now volunteers extensively at Unity Church of Melbourne as a Chaplain, Board member, discussion leader, program and party planner, and is working toward both Licensed Unity Teacher and Spiritual Director certification. She also volunteers as a Chaplain assistant at Holmes Regional Hospital
Poetry has flowed through Maggie since childhood and she has always written for both pleasure and communication. She now writes most often when she is moved by Spirit, which was probably the case all along anyway. She is grateful for the gifts and challenges of her Catholic upbringing which led her to see the goodness in all people and caused her to push forward seeking what she calls “God-ness”.
Dancing has always been one of her favorite forms of exercise, worship, and self-expression; solo or in groups, sedate, wild, sacred or profane. She also likes to make joyful noises with percussion instruments and is fond of rock, country, and classical music. She reads as well as writes poetry, likes drama, movies, science fiction, trashy novels, cooking, and making love whenever she gets the chance. "Falling Into Love: Reflections Along The Path" is her first book.
