About meI’m an odd, eclectic amalgam that shows the extensive diversity of my upbringing.

I am the mother of one seventeen year old. And, am prouder than proud of all he's accomplished in his life. When I grow up, I want to be just like my son.

I read too much and write less than I used to. I love to garden and am an excellent cook not to mention baker. I also sew, crochet, knit, spin (beginner level), weave (learning), dance, etc. As well, I make drums, rattles, fans and other and sundry leatherwork.

I’m an INTJ, and it’s deadly accurate. I’m also choleric-melancholy and Enneagram Four with a Five-Wing: “The Bohemian”.

I have recently started dancing again; and, am slowly getting back in shape.

I listen to all sorts of music. However, I do not like being yelled at in any way, shape or form - so most of that is right out. When it comes to dancing music - it’s pretty much country, swing or ballroom.

I’m hoping to find some good hiking places relatively close and get back to my hiking and camping. I’ve missed it. And since the pups love being out and about, it just seems like it’s a good time to start getting active in such things again. Besides, I could use the exercise!

I read a wide range of genres - sci-fi, fantasy, horror, suspense, thriller, romance, biographies, physics, history, anthropology, religion, etc.

About my libraryMy library is a diverse collection ranging from the worst fiction to be found to some of the most intriguing philosophical works, to historical essays and works on ancient Mesopotamia and anthropology to quantum physics, esoterica and linguistics.

Certainly, one would never be bored pursuing my library.

The saddest day was when I had to give away over two thirds of my library to relocate. I still feel the pain of that.

I am slowly cataloging what remains.

A Friend

(Carol Elaine Faivre-Scott)

Each of us has a hidden place
Somewhere deep within ourselves;
A place where we go to get away,
To think things through,
To be alone, to be ourselves.

This unique place, where we confront our deepest feelings,
Becomes a storehouse of all our hopes,
All our needs, all our dreams,
And even our unspoken fears.
It encompasses the essence of who we are and what we want to be.

But now and then, whether by chance or design,
Someone discovers a way into that place we thought was ours alone.
And we allow that person to see, to feel and to share
All the reason, all the uncertainty
And all the emotion we've stored up there.

That person adds new perspective to our hidden realm,
Then quietly settles down in his own corner of our special place,
Where a bit of himself will stay forever.
And we call that person a friend.
