About Me

CURRENT MISSION

busk and book and bike and boldly

ABOUT ME

Mujer hecha de martillos y ciudades y cuentas de madera, tejados y canciones y chocolate, idiomas varias y cadenas de bicicleta y la grasa negra subsiguiente, preguntas inesperadas y café y plantitas que crecen en el alféizar.

As far as I can gather you're supposed to listen to people and not hurt them. I don't tolerate oppression in my presence. We can talk about what that means for hours if you like!

I write and write and talk and sing and climb and scrape my knees and bike.

PHILOSOPHY

Is this making you happy? /................ \ yes.............. no ...................| ..........Can you change something until you are? ............/........................ \ ..........yes........................ no .......................................| ..................Enjoy some REM sleep and try again.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Called in sick to my dépanneur job in between sips from a New Hampshire natural spring, located by one of the three complete strangers I was bumping along New England back roads with in a persistently broken-down VW. What started out as a one-day ride to Burlington turned into a four-day road trip as each of us got closer to our respective destinations. We bush-camped, worked out an improvised dinner in the middle of the Maine woods, made it to the Kingdom in time for Taco Tuesday, and when we finally got to Burlington, our driver showed me how to find, recognize and cook one of the best mushrooms I've ever eaten.

Teach, Learn, Share

Oh kids, I got a banjo! Oh, please share your banjo skills if you got 'em. I also play the ukulele and a decent bit of guitar, grow plants and kombucha, make jam and bread and ratatouille and pickles and cider. Let me know if you want to learn about any of these things!
