I am an intrepid book enthusiast, who would rather have her toes in the sand than anywhere else in the world. I am learning my way through some glassblowing courses and would love to do that for a living, right after I'm done being an editor. I cannot live without a good bathtub. I have ALS, so stairs are a challenge for me...but I also am a marathon walker (I will use them until they stop working, these feet of mine!), so I live for great pedestrian-friendly locations. I need a good coffee house nearby, always. I am not a huge TV-watcher, I would rather sit and watch the birds and/or read on the porch. I am a quiet, clean, respectful traveler that just wants a small place to just be. I'd love to travel to the great beaches of the world, just to say I've had my toes in the ocean as much as possible.
