I live and work in Portland Oregon, raising three kids(Francis, Zephyr, and Inez) and 10 chickens, (I could name them all here but truthfully it is a revolving door).  I am married to Brad, about the funniest, smartest, most-excellent partner I could ask for.  I like him a lot.
I am an artist, musician, philosopher, teacher, and gardener, but no one pays me for any of this and I don’t claim to do any of it to any particular level of proficiency. I like music, food, the good Lord, coffee, tea, books, clay, fabric, skating, second-hand shopping and hot springs. I would like a hot spring for my birthday please, but if you don’t have a roof-rack to haul it, I would settle for a Japanese maple, part-shade.
