I live in a small town near the ferry terminal on Bainbridge Island, across the water from Seattle. We enjoy the beaches and mountains on the Olympic peninsula, grow vegetables in a community p-patch, climb in a local rock gym. I am a mediator and conflict communications trainer. I could not live without my freedom to choose, fresh air, music, movement, and layered clothing!! As a guest I can be conversational and curious to learn about the other people in the house and what they are about. At other times I like to retreat and get in a quiet evening with a peaceful nights' sleep. I am considerate of people in the space around me. Don't appreciate the habit of smoking. Among my many favorite travel destinations are La Manzanilla-Mexico, Ragland-North isle New Zealand, Manzanita Oregon, Rural Mississippi, Cadeques on La Costa Brava-Spain. My favorite food is a plate of steamed vegetables with a side of quinoa and a nice pile of parmesan and black pepper on the top.
