I was born, bred and fled Arkansas when the choice was mine to make! Got started on my traveling itch working the migrant fruit picking trails in the midWest and then into golden West... Settled here and there for differing lengths of spells, picking up another trade or skill til Seattle became homebase for years where I practiced as an Ayurvedic bodyworker, furniture craftsman, stonemason and generally sculpted beauty with my hands in many different mediums. Much of my travels have focused on getting into the deep West via dirt roads and less visited trails but I began to break out of the USA a few years ago with Morocco, my eye is now on Scotland, Patagonia and other wildling places! My life is a collection of stories as is my space. A fondness for cooking, home comforts and deep reading is what is here for you to enjoy when I am off scouting new treasure, making new connections and seeing where my love of right place and right time takes me. I reckon myself to a cultured country mouse that likes to explore yet as cozy back up to a stylish nest for an evening of wine or Scotch, good food and enlivening conversation.
