Location Exurban Phoenix, Arizona, United States
Introduction I’m an incredibly fortunate Baby Boomer. My life has been filled with joy, challenges, and learning opportunities. My three adult children, their spouses, my beautiful granddaughters, and my amusing pets all color my life. (Though no one is more colorful or amusing than my dear husband, Oldtimer!) My childhood was unusual and my parents unique (Lolo was an astrologer before most people knew what that was; Hawkshaw a WWII vet who lost both legs), which, combined with enough moves to put me in nine different schools in 12 years, gives a different perspective on life experiences. In my spare time, I work in my "tree house" of sewing and art projects (now on the ground floor, but still amidst greenery and overlooking water), as well as my soap kitchen, where I make beautiful luxury soaps and lotions. I like to work, love home decor projects, travel eagerly, embrace non-mainstream spirituality, and am grateful for *something* every single day.
Interests Gardening, reading, home decor, fabric/art dolls, fiber arts, soapmaking, fragrance, beads, travel.
Favorite Movies Dirty Dancing, Drop Dead Fred, Steel Magnolias, Sleepless in Seattle, Never Ending Story, and Practical Magic. I'm sure there are more...
Favorite Music I so rarely listen to music anymore. When I'm in the car, I listen to Blend or Pulse on Sirius, or my favorite artists on Pandora.
Favorite Books The Red Tent, Handmaid's Tale, Nicholas & Alexandra, Secret Life of Bees, The Wild Mother, King's Gunslinger series, Henry's Sisters, most anything by Elizabeth Goudge, Kris Radish, Sara Addison Allen, Cathy Lamb, Elizabeth Cunningham, oh so many more....

What would you name your ballet inspired by the sight of children leaping through a garden sprinkler?
