About me

Gender Female
Location Northeast, United States
Introduction I live in my dream place with Husband, one beloved rescued cat and one beloved rescued dog, and the warm memories of many other treasured pets. I rarely sleep for more than four hours at a time and would happily nap/wake/nap/wake all day and night. I am undisciplined, a classic underachiever. I believe that inevitable tragedy is a fork in the road, offering lessons in emotional and spiritual growth. One of my coping skills is a quick and wicked wit and I often crack me up. I avoid people who talk neverendingly about nothing. I cannot bear unrelieved humorless negativity. I like people who are comfortable with silence. I like listening to people who learn from Life. I have received a few Blogger Awards, and while I find them momentarily gratifying, they're just too much like chain emails and I gratefully decline to receive any more of them.
Interests Nature, photography, writing, books (for reading, for holding, for sniffing), the human condition.
Favorite Movies The ones that were made before I was born, starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Joan Crawford, Gene Tierney...
Favorite Music Celtic, country, juke joint blues, cool jazz, rock...all depending on my mood.
Favorite Books All of Annie Dillard's writing, Barbara Kingsolver, Susan Howatch's "Glittering Images" series, Ivan Doig novels, Nelson DeMille novels. "Collected Works of Edna St. Vincent Millay." More to come, no doubt.
