I was born and bred in the central valley of California- where the weather is worse than a woman on her period, always thriving in extremes. I grew up with no doubt that wizards and witches were walking among us, teaching at schools, sending their owls here or there, as I waited at home for my very own letter from that magical winged bird I adored. And believing in fairies that of course inhabit the whole of Ireland as my Aunt “witnessed” herself, written to me in a letter she told me an owl dropped off at my window (which was where I found it). There has never been a dull moment in my mind, where I often be, floating up yonder, other than the hacks of life that come barging through without invite. But without those “hacks” I wouldn’t be where I am today, and I wouldn’t be here to possibly and hopefully connect with you who take the care to read bits from my overloaded mind. Experience is the art of growing. And being stagnant never brings about the fun in this life that’s needed most! So I dare to live in the the extremes of infinite possibilities.
