About me

Gender Female
Occupation Lover of God, Word Artist, Seeker of Beauty
Location Alberta, Canada
Interests I receive great pleasure from writing, giving gifts, pottering, blogging, gardens, and kitty cats. Sunny winter days and summery twilight evenings. Reading. Good conversation over coffee. Children laughing and happy dogs out for their walks. Soft rainy days and robins in the spring. Knowing I've touched someone in a way that encourages, strengthens, and helps them see the beauty too...
Favorite Movies Enchanted April, Shall We Dance, Chariots of Fire, Jane Austen movies, Shell Seekers, 84 Charing Cross Road, Brideshead Revisited, You've Got Mail...
Favorite Music Mozart, Bach, Handel, Christian meditative music, Sultans of String. Other genres also bring me joy, including the songs of birds, bubbling brooks, falling rain, leaves dancing in the wind, buzzing bees, tunes that come up from the heart when happy
