I am thirty-four. I share my life with a handsome Hemingway-type man, and the spirit of our dandy Bosie-type golden retriever, and two new cats, named Morph & Rufus. I am a PhD Candidate (ABD) and a lecturer of English literature. I am a Canadian Prairie girl a la Joni Mitchell stranded (momentarily?!) on the Plains of the American Southwest.
I'm using this hyperspace, thanks to my Nikon camera, to document my attempts at living a creative, responsible, healthy, handmade life in defiance of corporations and multinationals that push us into thoughtless mass consumerism and destructive consumption. Therefore, I knit, I craft, I thrift, I run, I bike, I garden, I read, I walk, I write, I bird, I sew, I recycle, I reuse, I give, I receive, I create and sustain, I meditate and do yoga... .
I believe in a well-crafted, creative, thoughtful, responsible, and sustainable life. I don't believe in lifestyles.
