I live in the shadow of the rocky mountains but my heart wanders.
Interests: Traveling, art, reading, writing, politics, crossword puzzles, finding an amazing new poet or artist, almond milk chai lattes. I also love a fresh new newspaper or magazine, preferably read in the bath with a nice cup of tea.

I don’t pretend to desire to be perfect; in fact, I find most beauty lies in imperfection. The scar, the path that’s harder to walk down, perhaps covered in weeds. The complicated situation. Who wants the easy boredom of a... Continue reading
