Introduction I'm a forty-year-old Catholic revert with absolutely no patience for stupidity, liars, cheaters, Liberals (as if there's a difference) or the undisciplined.... I'm staunchly conservative, and becoming more so with each passing day.... In my spare time I keep a huge vegatable garden, make wine (yes, I'm a vintner!) for the American Chesterton Society, create specialty scrapbooks for others and travel.... Since I was a very little girl, I have seen the world around me in Medieval terms. I don't know why, but in my mind, the Church is a great, big Rennaisance Fair that never ends--complete with rogues and saints and crooked priests, dark enchanted forests and villains hanging like bats in the trees waiting to pounce. When I see myself I am the wild-haired untamable chick with a bad attitude in billowing gold skirts wearing a hairshirt underneath, a giant rosary hanging from my belt and a pretty nasty-looking dagger strapped to my leg underneath it all. Warrior-nun-in-girlie-clothes--that's me.
