Midwest but not a farmer's daughter. Did grow up by a few though. Art therapist,currently can't find job in my field. Work at community college with people with disabilities. Like to read and listen to books(Richard Brautigan, Alice Walker, Madeline L'Engle, Ray Bradbury, Agatha Christie just tell me where to stop here..), talk with friends, creativity, whatever keeps the energy flowing. I crochet hats that look like oceanwater coral, Fav cookbook: All Moosewoods. Month off: I would spend it at the ocean where I feel like I can be myself all the way.
