The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down what seemed to be a very deep well... Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end? “I wonder how many miles I’ve fallen by this time?” she said aloud. “I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth.”
— Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Hello there.

A little about me.

I am not young. I’m into my seventh decade on this good Earth. I’ve got the wrinkles to prove it.

But I’m not old either. At least not in the pejorative sense, which seems the only sense of the word these days. Old means having lived longer than many others. Old means elder than...

I’m an Elder. I’ve been around. I’m experienced. I’m well worn. I’m wise. Well...sometimes.

I have things to say. I know things. I’ve learned much. I’m learning still and have no intention of stopping. I’m a rabid gatherer of information. I dive down many rabbit holes. I know a little about a whole lot and a whole lot about a little.

Astrology is one of the deeper holes. I've been obsessed with the subject for years and likely always will be. It is endlessly fascinating.

People have told me - surprisingly often - that they’ve made some big change in their lives because they saw me do it first. I think it's because I live out loud. I tend to be upfront with stuff I’m experiencing. Someone once said it’s like I have a scrolling marquee on my forehead.

My favorite subject is human nature. What makes us be who we are, do what we do. Astrology yields profound insight.

What I crave most is freedom. I do not relish being told who to be, what to do, or when to do it.

So I travel the path, learning how to be free and how to relate to others.

Experience has come from many directions. Marriage, motherhood, personal development, druidry, dog training, mythology, business, shamanic journeys, horses, network marketing, and, of course, astrology have all yielded revelations.

All of it boils down to I and thou. How do we live with others on this planet and yet be who we are meant to be?

Random bits….

I was born in Memphis, Tennessee. I lived in the South for the first third of my life, and in northern Vermont ever since. So technically I’m a New Englander, although I still feel Southern. I get massively homesick every April when there ought to be green on the trees but there's not.

Most of my working life until lately was as an architectural technologist, a ridiculous term for a drafter who uses computers. I’ve also worked in a pizza place, an engineering firm, a natural foods market, a mining machinery company, a café, and a gardening center. I relish variety.

I live with my dear entrepreneurial husband Dan, my hound dog Hercules, and black cat Carlos, all of whom I love to distraction. My two amazing sons who I adore are out creating their young and interesting lives.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find something of value here.
