...family, friends and music,! I love dancing and singing, the sounds of bugs and birds. I enjoy going to new places, exploring, getting lost, getting more lost, as well as being a tourist in my own town. I think the ordinary is so often sacred. Meeting new people is a wonderful thing, and I forget just how much I enjoy getting out into nature until I go again.
I've been a professional chanson singer and presented a rock radio show at pbs fm, one of the greatest radio stations on the planet, for five years. I love my job as an ESL teacher, my students teach me so much!
Live a rich life, be open to the world and take the time to smell the roses and balloons.
