||I am a woman who has done many things and has yet many things to do. I feel that I have lived four lifetimes in this one life; itís already been an extremely full life.
I have spent over twenty years in technical theatre and worked with thousands of companies and performers. I am still doing this.
I want to heal from my past and improve my future.
I want to live a better life, one that we can actually live, rather than only trying survive from one moment to the next. I think that it would be refreshing.
I want to learn to play the cello.
I want to learn to be a potter, working with clay and creating beautiful, functional art that comes from the earth.
There is always so much to learn, and I never know how I'll ever have enough time for it all.

Health care and education would be available to everyone. Trees would be planted. There are many things that I would like to do, that I believe are important, and those thoughts are far too involved for one small box of type.
|What/who changed my life and why
||Every day we are changed by everyone and everything around us. That is part of life. Life has been full, thus far, and I do not know how I would find only one moment that changed everything for me. Life is full of constant change.
|What Bugs Me
pompous and condescending people,
seemingly endless cruelty in the world,
lies and games
cool and rainy days
|What Scares Me
||The self is a dance, constantly in motion.
