originally from Europe, traveled and lived in many different spots around the world, enjoy life very much as it is becoming shorter. Worked in a number of different fields, last 20 years as an artisan, I create with antique ethnic textiles and natural specimens, found objects etc. Good food, gorgeous nature, animals, movies, interesting discussions and the ever entertaining presence of my cats are some of the things I enjoy.
previous careers included cab driver, teacher, translator, interpreter, sales manager, attorney, artisan so maybe not an expert at anything but a fairly decent Jill of many trades.
2 indoor cats, (my neighborhood has coyotes, bobcats and all manner of critters who think anything under the size of a Rhodesian ridgeback might turn out to be a good snack) I travel with my cats and this summer we made it all the way from Texas to Whitehorse Yukon Territory.
Lots of them but particularly along Route 60 from Socorro to ShowLow are some of my faves, others were some of the spots on this summers Canada trip.
It used to be Austin, TX but from 2018 on it is Santa Fe, NM. I moved to Santa Fe for a number of reasons, not the least is it's gorgeous surrounding areas, the nice 4 seasons weather (Austin only has 2 and the second one only lasts 5 days) and the cultural/artistic offerings here.
