About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Professional Storyteller
Location I'm a little bit sassy, but I can't help it. I'm from Denton, Texas, United States
Introduction My blogging moved to a self hosted blog at This Eclectic Life. I’m old enough to be a member of AARP, but young enough to be able to laugh about it. In my house, I have a husband, a teenager, and five felines. It’s a zoo. I fell in love with my husband because of his huge…vocabulary. I love words and in fact I’m bilingual. I fluently speak both English and Texan. Though I’d like to learn to speak Spanish, it eludes me. As much as I love music, I can’t carry a note in a bucket. I’m a professional storyteller(I love shivery ghost stories and folk tales), a spinner, and a weaver. You might say I “spin yarns” literally and figuratively. Or, you might say I wear many hats. I also collect hats, which hang on my walls collecting dust. I have a hoard of "hands," books, antique fans, spinning wheels, musical instruments, toys, antique tools, masks. I’m a recovering packrat. That’s a lie. I would like to be recovering. I’m curious about anything and everything, and think the rest of the world should be inquisitive also.

The squish of mud between your toes; how would you live your life as a frog?

That question is a tad silly. I'd rather croak than live my life as a frog. Who makes up these questions?
