I've been a server all my life, loved the work as a sort of dance and nurturing ministry, (how's that again?) Friends call me an earth mother. Lots of interests and hobbies, music, watercolor painting, reading, hiking, creek wading, gardening, politics, love learning all the time. It's really the land that called me to travel, see the way the landscape changes, find wild herbs and edibles, find new ways to connect with nature and people.
Always learning! I know a lot about wild edibles and herbs on the East Coast, love the spontaneity of a stimulating philosophical or political conversation, I'm all about spreading joy wherever I go!
All my pets have been rescued, Prince Charley Prancer is a 6 yo border collie mix with service dog training. Pippi Longstocking the black cat arrived at my door 13 years ago with a broken tail and gangrene in her tookus, now walks with me every night, and Peppercorn the chicken was pulled from someone's pot 6 years ago because her owner thought she was too old to lay eggs. She gave me an egg daily for 4 years, and now at 10, rules the roost here!
I was a Philly girl for most of my life, grew up on a mini farm north of the city, wound up homeschooling my daughter and working along a beautiful wild creek called the Wissahickon right in the city itself. Sold my tiny house in March, and have been adventure traveling since then. Surprisingly, the pets love to travel with me!
1998 National Seabreeze, with very few miles on her! I call her the Bluebird of Happiness, named after a song my mom loved. I am dolly towing a little brown Fiat 500 (Coco), so my total length is about 45 ft. There have been jokes about towing a brown lump of a car behind my beautiful bird, but I pay them no mind, ha ha....
What a delightful lady. When she requested a stay and I saw that she travels with a dog, a cat and a chicken I knew this was someone I would enjoy meeting and I was correct.
She marveled at the beauty of the mountains all around as I do daily. Her traveling companions were quite entertaining.
We ate and shared an adult beverage by the firepit and had a long meaningful conversation.
Seldom do we meet someone whom we feel we have known forever. This was one of those rare and memorable occasions.
If her travels bring her back this way I sincerely hope she will stop and visit again.
