words to move to the next level. Guess since my current novel is
already well over three hundred pages, I shouldn't have that much
trouble with this task.
I like to describe myself in "R" words as follows:
I'm resilient, like one of those blow up clowns with a weighted
base. You can keep knocking me down, but I'll just pop up again,
but you better watch out, cause I might unintentionally bop you on
the way back up : )
I'm resourceful. I know how to grow food and have a decent
sized organic kitchen garden with vegetables, fruits and herbs. I
can make my own clothes if need be and may start again just to
have something made in the USA (has anyone else noticed how little
is made in the USA?). I have a lot of interests, am curious to
learn new things, have multiple talents and tons of
I'm reliable. If you are my friend I will always try to be there
for you and I will keep my promises to you. I only ask that you do
the same for me.
I'm real, too. In the inimitable words of Flip Wilson - "What you
see is what you get." My profile pic is less than a year old and I
don't lie about my age, dye my hair, waste time in a tanning bed or
paint my nails (though I do indulge in a little make-up and I enjoy
the smell of perfume on me). I'm into Environmentalism,
Social justice, and the pursuit of Peace, all things I consider
really important if our species is going to survive this
Having to start another food garden from scratch...been busy clearing brush, cutting down trees. Got taters planted, rhubarb and some herbs. The heirloom tomatoes are started in yogurt cups.
I am a Master Composter and a Piedmont Landscape and Naturescape trainer. I'm teaching classes about composting, organic gardening, and gardening with native plants whenever someone will listen.
My new husband (thanks OKC) and I have started a mushroom farm. We have tons of chanterelles growing wild around our home, but have started cultivating shitakes and oysters as well.
Naomi Klein, James Michener, E. L. Doctorow, Umberto Eco, Leon Uris
and more. Also love the classics: Shakespeare, Dickens,
Machiavelli, Austen, Collette, Dumas, etc., etc. I can always
reread a classic
Movies: Shakespeare In Love, Cold Mountain, Fried Green Tomatoes,
Nights in Rodanthe, In Her Shoes, Forrest Gump. I really, really
liked the latest Star Trek movie and Avatar was OK (excellent
special effects, though a little lacking in story line). Then of
course there's Gone With the Wind and Casablanca.
TV Shows: Colbert Report, Daily Show, McNeil-Lehrer NewsHour,
Saturday Night Live. Really don't watch that much TV.
Music: Pretty eclectic but I like ZZ Top, Love and Theft, Chris
Isaak, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Jimmy Buffett, Diana Krall,
Fleetwood Mac, Cheryl Wheeler, Adrienne Young, Allison Krauss, Joe
Cocker... just to mention a few.
