herbalist, organic farmer, thespian, traveler, sometimes writer;
semi-retired and lovin' it; trying to spend more time OUT of the
shop, and more time out on the land; a definite "plant person";
love buildin' stuff (sheds, garden furniture/sculptures, shelves,
greenhouses, etc etc). I live a very grateful life!
What I’m doing with my life
farming and traveling, and starting a "food and herbal medicine
co-op" store on my farm. Hopefully the Great Cape Coop will be the
first in the country. And having the members run the biz will free
me up to travel and write more....
I’m really good at
playing on my tractor, and talking to my chickens :))
Picking the wrong partners ! :))
Bad real estate investments (lost China apartment to second wife;
lost 2 cool bungalows in Thailand) !
The first things people usually notice about me
very abundant hair !! and nose !!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Peoples' History of the United States, by Howard Zinn; Julia Child;
Beckett (O'Toole and Burton); Pride and Prejuduce (book AND
movie!!); Jane Austen; Mamma Mia; Meryl Streep!! (amazing woman);
Jeremy Irons; Brideshead Revisited; Otma Leibert, and on and on...
But Downton Abbey is the BEST!!!!! I am SO in love with those
The six things I could never do without
food, water, oxygen, shelter, clothing, heat
(I know, I know.. I'm supposed to say something mushy like "my
mother, my child, or "long walks on the beach".... NOT)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
re-distribution of wealth worldwide; social justice; "mans'
inhumanity to man"; finding Utopia..... trout fishing in mountain
"Strange, irrational beings from another planet"-- females !
On a typical Friday night I am
searching Craig's List for good stuff, and cooking an amazing meal
with yummy wines. I don't go out much. People usually come here for
our "farm family fireside dinners".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
... someone is threatening to take away your budgie if you don't !
