University studies landed me a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I'm an active artist in many mediums including ink, watercolor, paper, fabric, metal, practitioner of string geekiness, and fully intend to get around to practicing my lute one of these years. The majority of the life stuff in my Journal is friends only. There you will find political rantings, spiritual musings, cooking and sewing notes, SCA-fu, and banter about life. Past resident of multiple states in the Southern half of the USA, still a resident of the deserts of Arizona. For the SCA folks the kingdoms are Outlands, Ansteorra and now Atenveldt.
