Bio: Starting at the turn of this century, my life began a slow and steady disintegration. My habit had always been to try and hold it all together. It turned out that was not going to be possible this time. It was unwise anyway. It is never a good idea to try and hold onto toxic people and situations. And I had collected a lot of that in my life. My blog is about using my brain, hands, and body to create a better life for myself. Writing will take care of the mental exercise and dance, sewing, gardening, and yoga will take care of the physical. Ideally, both will learn how to work together and feed each other and this will lead to healing.
