I like to make things look beautiful. If I had the opportunity, I would pack it all in and help people. I don't believe in fighting nature...If only rocks grow in my garden, that's what I'd plant. I like certain weeds because they are survivors. I'm fascinated by different cultures. I rescued a snapping turtle, a Canadian Goose, a milk snake, and a feral cat. I would like to go back home to California. I'm curious. Small intimate dinner parties.
