I live in the shadow of the rocky mountains in with my husband, my beautiful son, my two cats, and far too many books.
Interests: Art, animal rights, reading, writing, politics, crossword puzzles, finding an amazing new poet or artist, almond chai lattes, traveling. I also love a fresh new newspaper or magazine, preferably read in the bath with a nice cup of tea.

Hello again, wee corner of the world. I feel like I haven’t been here in forever, just buzz-feeding whatever strikes my fancy and saying very little. That’s intentional, and natural I think--I’ve been busy this summer--but in this age of... Continue reading

I seem to love everything this band puts out (hear another great song by Alt-J, if you're interested). A beautiful song and video. I really appreciate any voyeuristic view of distant warm landscapes from deep inside this March weather, where... Continue reading
