I love peace and quiet, yet enjoy playing music w/ a few friends: bluegrass and old time/Appalachian style. During the warmer months of the year, I am outside gardening. In the winter time, I'm indoors sewing, reading, cooking. I strive to leave as little a carbon footprint as possible and interested in environmental issues. I love meeting new people and hearing their life stories.
