Hello, hosts! I thrive on travel and did so extensively before single parenthood created different priorities. Currently we're more about domestic trips from our home base in Portland, OR (although my 14yo daughter's headed to Costa Rica for a service/Spanish immersion trip this summer). She and I are low-maintenance travelers who spend most of our time out and about. When we *are* around, we're tidy, quiet, and fun.
I'm a professional multipotentialite (research consultant/writer/editor/project manager) with my own business for ~17 years. Fan of the outdoors, hiking, rivers lakes and oceans, festivals, frenzied dancing, occasions lending themselves to costumery, board and card games, reading from fine lit to true crime. Lapsed geocacher. Particular affinities for sea turtles, paisley, dahlias, orchids, turrets, vintage cars, labyrinths, ruins and abandoned buildings, album cover art (the *vinyl* kind), and oddities. My daughter's a runner, reader, writer, performing circus-arts acro-stilter, animal-lover, school-lover, incredible mimic, and outspoken devotee of continuing to improve her Spanish. (Plus: awesome.)
