i love the rain and the early morning hours. i have been walking miles along the park setting of lake merritt and enjoying the aliveness in the air. i am gifted with a healing arts business where my beloved and i hand-craft an organic line of herbal teas and aromatherapy. i try to rest and restore as much as possible. i feel at home by the ocean as well as rivers and creeks. beauty is important to me... as is clarity, meaning, and organization. creativity is at the heart of my being. i am student. i am teacher. i am.
