CURRENT MISSION: Simplicity and ease
Originally from Buffalo, New York, I moved to VA in 1983 to live in an intentional community called Twin Oaks. I lived there for 16 years, doing economic planning, hammock-weaving, forestry, cooking, child-care, and many other activities to fulfill my work quota. Since moving to Charlottesville in 1999, my primary money-making occupation has been nonprofit accounting for a few great organizations, the most recent being Local Food Hub. I am currently transitioning to offering community-based workshops in Alexander Technique, urban permaculture, community-building, and strategies for simple living. I live with one other woman (Ann), one dog (Gerry), and three cats (Saffy, Bella, Dolly).
PHILOSOPHY: Live simply and fully, be kind to all (including myself!)
Interests: People, community, permaculture, Alexander Technique, reading, growing my own food, food processing (yogurt, butter, cheese, jams, dehydrating ...), Buddhism, meditation, partner juggling, learning new things, spending time with friends & family.
