“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”


I’m a learner who teaches and a teacher who learns.  
Every day offers something new.


Hi! I’m Robin, known in the online world as RobinLK. I’m a lifelong writer and the owner of and chief mess maker in RobinLK Studios. I write about life, learning, and creative curiosity.  I create whatever my heart is feeling…..


–>  The backstory:

Nearing the end of high school many years ago and on a path still unclear, I joined the Navy, where I gained new perspectives and the start of a degree. Though my interests would change and my choice of degree would follow, I eventually graduated. With several chapters in my book of life complete or fully underway, I became a teacher and have had the privilege of working with students 14 – 40+, along with many fellow teachers…. all while writing about life and its quirkiness.

–>  The current story:

  • I see the world as a box of crayons, full of hope and creativity ~ and always coloring outside the lines
  • I often see details that some miss, catching life one image at a time – often through a lens and frequently from my car truck window.
  • A fan of color and words (and sometimes colorful words!), I’m rediscovering the fun of creating, long after childhood. It’s not unusual to find splotches of paint on my arms, elbows, or legs during a Monday meeting…😉
  • As curious (and messy) as a 3-year old, I’m a lifelong learner, questioner, ponderer …
  • Often described as outgoing, I’m increasingly introverted as I age… weird!
  • Married to a guy who supports my never-ending curiosity, and mom to two furry kitties who make me laugh every day.

–>  What I believe about life & learning: 

  • It’s always a process, complete with detours, speed bumps, and often, green lights (if we look closely enough)
  • Questioning is a must!
  • Fun and play are E.ssential
  • Struggle is a necessary evil…
  • A life with purpose is the only way to live

For many of us, our stories never get out of our heads. I share mine as I try to make sense of it all, with its train wrecks and triumphs, A-ha’s and Oh, mans!… the ups, downs, and inside-outs. Hopefully, you’ll find a post (or two) that makes you laugh, cry, question, comment, yell, rant, riff, remark …. most of all … think and act.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to head back into The Studios, where the work table is covered in my latest creations and words are waiting to jump out of my head.🙂

Want to read more? Come on in! Grab a cup of coffee, pull up a comfy chair, and stay a while…

Thanks so much for stopping by!
