About meI'm a Pagan, who celebrates the solstice and New Year (but not Christmas).


Extrovert, whose friends are mostly trees & books.
Photographer, poet, artist.
I recognize on sight more mammals than most (non-biologists) have ever heard of.

After 'retiring' in 2009, unleashed my inner ultra-bookworm: I read 200-300ish books a year.

Clusters of interests:
+ art & design
+ biogeography/ecology /// in North America ~ Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes, Southwest; elsewhere ~ northern Europe, Madagascar, Pacific Rim
+ cultural & literary criticism
+ First Nations' literatures, esp Anishinaabe
+ information design, data visualization
+ languages & translation
+ neurodiversity & creativity
+ photography
+ poetry, esp multilingual and translated
+ psychology & cognitive neuroscience
+ "sense of place" & terroir
+ social justice

About my libraryMost of my own books aren't in LT yet, hence the frequency of "don't own". I'm lucky to live near the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, which is the source of many of my "Inter-Library Loan" books. "Read but unowned" is usually books I purged because I knew I'd never reread them.
