Location Seattle, Washington
Introduction I accidentally created two profiles on Blogger. Whoops. This is because I'm an email separatist. I have an address for my writing world, my mothering world, my friends world, my work world, my junk mail world... I am not however, a food separatist. Finding flavors that marry and meld is fun... I spent half my life overseas (Uganda, Morocco, Belgium, Thailand) and now more than half my life in the U.S. of A... I was the arm wrestling champ of my 5th and 6th grade class - boys and girls included. It was a vital piece of my personal identity... I'd like to live in a house made of straw and mud. Surrounded by good friends... I'm surprised at how, mostly, I'm a pretty good mom... The sound of TV commercials or radio ads makes me gnash my teeth... I can do the Bird of Paradise yoga pose with freaky ease. I can do the Crow with marginal success, which pisses me off in an un-yoga-like manner... I'd like to be reborn as a gospel singer... I don't drink coffee. It hurts my stomach and makes my head echo. But I like the smell... I love bacon. People seem to assume I’m a vegetarian. Probably because I want to live in a house made of mud and straw and grow food.
