I am retired from the arts world (modern dance) and enjoy gardening and activism. Mostly I enjoy continuing to learn, my son and my friends.
I'm not a big traveler. I like my "Howard's End" here in the Heights of the rustbelt. It has a rich history. I love hosting folks and learning from guests.
I'm engaged in my neighborhood, an historic district, but with a "city repair" bent; sharing assets, skills, time, gardens. I'm fascinated by permaculture, and I'm forever working on how to make this little plot a food forest. I garden on my yard, my neighbor's yard and at a vacant house across the street. I'm learning.
I've been known to circulate initiative and referendum petitions, fight city hall and just say "no thanks" to bad ideas that arise in our culture locally and globally. I study monetary policy and theory when I'm not gardening or organizing with neighbors and friends.
I enjoy British drama and the classics and documentaries.
I appreciate history, coffee, beer, dogs (cats, too) and the natural world. I'm shrinking my carbon foot print as best I can in this old family home. I chose it in 1989 and still choose it today.
