My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am quirky, mostly happy, and an outgoing introvert. I love to create and build things, mostly using metalwork, enameling and textile arts. I have a wide variety of competencies , and find other skillful folks exciting and inspiring to be around. I delight in the grey cool damp days of winter far more than the sunny warm summertime, (which is a good thing considering where I live)

Not much of a movie/teevee person, but made an exception for Firefly/Serenity, and am quite fond of Miyazaki.

I read science fiction and how-to manuals with equal enjoyment. (started reading science fiction when I outgrew reading horse stories) I read incessantly and voraciously, and have since before they sent me to school. There are a number of books that permanently changed the inside of my head, these three are the first that come to mind...

I have been recovering from cancer diagnosis and treatment in 2012, so my physical stamina is still coming back. There are no current signs of cancer, and odds are that I will live a long life and die of something entirely different
