About me

Location Northwest Ohio, United States
Introduction I'm a forty-something psychologist living in small-town Ohio with my wonderful husband and our cats Smokey, Seafus, Gremmy and Pickles. For the most part, I blog about design and the visual arts. My primary qualification for doing so is that I have no education, experience, or background whatsoever in design or the visual arts. No, really. I firmly believe this allows me to bring a fresh perspective when I look at, post and write about these topics. I have no pre-suppositions or structure to work within. I have no one to impress and I'm not sellin' nothing. (OK, I run some ads. But you know what I mean.) I can do as I like, and that's the way I like it.
Interests I do a bit of crafts and digital photos and fractals and stuff. I sell used books and digital images on the web. I also have an eensy little Etsy shop.
Favorite Movies Tender Mercies, Terminator II, The Wizard of Oz, The Fugitive, The Sound of Music
Favorite Music Elvis Costello, The Beatles, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, The Monkeys, Bob Dylan, Rockpile, Motown, oldies from the 50s and 60s, + lots more.
Favorite Books Ones by Madeline L'Engle, J.D. Salinger (and I don't mean Catcher, I mean his other stuff), Jane Austen, Anne Tyler, lots of others.

Your people want to make a statue in your honor. What will it be made out of and what victory will it commemorate?

I don't know what it will commemorate, but it will surely be made of chocolate.
