I live in the Los Angeles area with my husband Steve and our two cats. We are both licensed mental health professionals and are quiet, respectful, personable, and curious travelers. I'm also a practicing poet and editor. I enjoy contemporary poetry, the arts, gardens and trees, museums, architecture, midcentury Japanese cinema, and Asian food (Vietnamese, Thai). I'm part Japanese and appreciate all things Japanese, especially traditional food and the arts. When I travel, I like to WALK and make unexpected discoveries off the beaten path (rather than check off destinations in a guidebook).
