View: Posts | Topics

Interests: Free spirit, kindred soul. Dreamer, mama, taker-in of strays. Homesteading seamstress, Irish gypsy; voracious book reader, abominable speller. A song-singing sylvan, lost in the dream time. A fortune-telling ballerina, year of the horse, bohemian traveler with a weakness for the picaresque; and a perpetually late, cigarette smoker... Things that fascinate me: * Museums, Caves, Catacombs, Bog Bodies, Cliff Mummies, History, Sociology, Anthropology, Books, Books, Books.
