About me

Location Anchorage, Alaska, United States
Introduction I love everything that is as agreeable as Spring, even Winter--even in March! I esteem and depend upon family and friends, really dig digging my toes into warm sand at the beach, have a relationship with lovely food, and entertain a certain wanderlust that I have not been able to shake since youth-hood. I crave creativity and imagining--I like to paint, write, sew (sometimes)and make-up stuff. My best-served quote is from Chiam Potok who said, "One treasures most the place where he first learned the nature of things." Maybe he said that. Maybe I dreamed it. But it fits. I have learned the nature of many things in many places and I can't figure out where home is. Right now, it's where I am and where a lot of people I love are. And it's where my stuff is.
