My name is Donna Blue and I love living out here. I'm from Chicago but found this place in 1986 and fell in love! We added on to the house and planted trees which are now huge-- and the gardens are, well, mature and lovely.
After going back and forth from Chicago on weekends I decided to JUST LIVE here,,. which I've been doing for about 12 years.
I'm an actor, playwright, teacher and director. I founded and was the Artistic Director of the Blue Rider Theater in Chicago for 14 years. I spent many years of my life traveling to do research for my plays, and performed abroad and Off- Broadway!
I have lived in Haiti, Poland, and trekked in Nepal (to just name a few.) I have been blessed with many people who welcomed me into their homes and
treated me wonderfully. Now it's my turn to host and I'm excited to share this beautiful place with others!
I perform at the Acorn Theater, teach drama in schools and hold retreats here on the land. I do all the gardening (my dog helps!) and love winters here as much as summers.
