About me

Gender Female
Location Southern California
Introduction I'm Kelly, and The Rambling Nest is where I ramble on about daytrips and vacations with my family, and also about subjects closest to my heart: writing and music and nesting at home with a good book. (Formerly The Reading Nest.)
Favorite Music Radio Paradise (internet radio), Also: Neko Case, Waylon Jennings, The Band, Little Feat, John Hiatt. AM Gold, one-hit wonders, classic rock, classic country, & Sinatra and Dean Martin when I get those yearnings for Palm Springs.
Favorite Books Literary fiction and memoir. I love Annie Dillard, Alice Munro, Mary Karr, Laurie Colwin, Raymond Carver, poets Mary Oliver and Frank O'Hara and too many other names & titles to possibly list.

You can whistle and steam can whistle, so why do you sing in the shower?

To drown out the cries of the children, of course.
