More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

Rock climbing, scuba diving, backpacking, canoeing, martial arts (krav maga), cross-stitch, metal detecting at the beach, gold digging, sapphire mining, and my newest hobby is geocaching (www.geocaching.com)

I grew up hating poetry...mostly from school experiences, but I've been writing since 2001 thanks to a friend who knew how to draw it out of my heart. It's a "garden" thing....smiles. It has been a most amazing and transcending experience to learn how to express the deepest stirrings of the soul.

I enjoy music...particularly the Irish and Celtic genre. I play several instruments...accordion (the instrument from hell), melodica, bones, and the bodhran. I made the attempt at the organ, piano, guitar, and hammered dulcimer. The hammered dulcimer was a lot of fun for sure.

I have traveled all around the world and lived in another culture, the Philippines, for 16 years.

About My Navel

I was in the navy. Does that count?
