I am a teacher (middle special ed.) and an artist. I have two grown children who are now living elsewhere and plenty of room to offer to guests. I am excited to be able to share some of it with visitors from around the globe. My interests and friends are varied. I enjoy hiking, camping, gardening, knitting, making mosaics, running, music, dance, reading, and traveling. John Stewart and NPR provide most of my news. I am very much my own person and appreciate honesty and straightforwardness. My travels have offered me abundant opportunities, and I would like to offer you a great location from which to enjoy your stay in Seattle.
