My self-summary
This is this funny thing. I have no dimples, and I am not succinct. I am excellent in the kitchen, excellent at the spoken and written word, and need some help with decor. I'm well-traveled, well-read, and need to travel and read a great deal more. I'm surely forgetting several somethings, and I can live with that. Just realizing that I led off with the kitchen makes me slightly uncomfortable.

I judge ice cream lines by their strawberry.

I am loyal, but not easy, and I love narrative and non-narrative equally. Being a children's librarian and an unusual writer/performer/maker goes together about as well as you'd think. Very.

I dream of following in E.B. & Katharine White's footsteps quite often.

Unions and public servants and universal human rights, I like those. I'm the daughter of a nurse-midwife and a social worker, and I'm an artist and librarian, and if none of that makes any sense to you, this probably won't be a go.
What I’m doing with my life
I read books to children, I instruct others how to read books to children, and I spend a lot of time pursuing that unusually public thing that is the public library. Sometimes in small rooms, sometimes on islands. I have a complex professional past and present.

Above all, I am into telling stories, and being there when stories are told.
I’m really good at
Loud laughter. Syntax. Stocking a cupboard. Listening and interrupting. Equivocation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Freckles in the eyes. Sharp tongue. Confusing.

What you see is more what you get than it used to be--but I still think there's an element of deception or surprise. I seem to have hidden depths.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I own a lot of cookbooks. I'm also partial to transcendentalists and New Englanders and Dorothy Allison and James Baldwin and Jane Austen and trashy science fiction and excellent science fiction and anything else I can get my hands on. Mean stories, from any era. If you recommend books to me, I actually read them. I read a lot of crap too, and these days I read a lot of great books for children and young adults.

Horn sections. Damn I love those.

I probably haven't seen too many of the movies you love. Please enjoy educating me. Or don't. Except I won't watch most horror movies. I get scared.

I love love love watching anyone do anything with great competence, or talk about how they love their job. Documentaries and DVD extras provide this pleasure in spades.

Food. Produce. In large quantities. Fruit and flowers. Noodles and bread and sweets and spicy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Rising oceans. Buttercream. Loved ones.

You should message me if
You have something to say. 'Um, hi, how's your weekend?' isn't going to get a response. That said, I know this is hard and you do get points for trying, so just be your awesome self and say hello. Genuine kindness and a bit of effort goes far.
