It’s about time we met.


If you could vacation to a fictional world (i.e. Middle Earth, Narnia, Pandora, Hogwarts) where would you go?

Oh, you’re here to learn about me.

Well, I push myself to say “yes” to those things that scare me–whitewater kayaking, working with preteens, saving house spiders.

Of course, it’s easier for me to do the things I love–backpacking, writing, painting, holding small moments in my hand and rubbing my thumb on them till they’re smooth. Oh, and asking big questions to people who visit my website. By the way, did you think of an answer? Take your time and get back to me when you’re ready.

Currently, I’m struggling to answer the question where are you from? My roots are in Montana, but my home is in a 60-square-foot van that I strive to park on even ground.

And, in case you’re wondering, I’d visit the Clayr’s Library in the Old Kingdom.
