My Photo


I am many things to many people; wife, daughter, mother, freind... but to me, I am really a permeable barrier between the external and internal worlds I experience. Just one big filter; like a set of gills with a head and body.

I'm a native Pacific Northwest woman - with deepest roots tied to family and place, though which "family" continues to shift as time moves on. I get greatest satisfaction from cooking a good meal, writing a good story, and petting my furriest cat. Making the dog smile counts highly as well.

I am blessed with an excellent man and a great daughter, have more than I need, and strive for meaning in all that I do. The degree of success in this latter domain is often obfuscated, but the desire exists nonetheless.
