Greetings to all!
I am a teacher and a mother, a wife and the guardian of three cats! I am so happy to meet you!
I am an instructor at a local university with a specialty in medieval literature (Arthurian traditions, Celtic [Welsh and Irish] poetry, Anglo-Saxon verse, and writings of the great mystics); medieval art (Romanesque and Gothic architecture, medieval manuscripts) and cultural, social and women's history (anything medieval). I also am fascinated by religion and the spiritual traditions of the world. I am a vegetarian, a member of PETA (animal rights), a gardener, hiker and a reader. I love literature (everything from Beowulf and Shakespeare and Dickens to Dylan Thomas and Tolkien and Tana French), art, music, drama, history and folk traditions, and all nature (particularly oceans/ bodies of water, birds and flowers). I look forward to postcards from the world- especially cards with literary, artistic, religious/ spiritual, and historical significance, as well as anything to do with nature or "Middle-earth"! Please do not send advertising cards or any kind of commercial cards but please do send cards with comments about you and your world!
Some of my favorite quotations for you to enjoy:
From Jesus: "For what does it profit a man if he gain the whole world but lose his soul?"
From JRR Tolkien: "Not all who wander are lost."
From Rumi: "When you let go of who you are, you become who you might be."
From Dr. Seuss: "Take every chance. Drop every fear."
From Maya Angelou: "If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be."
May you always walk in the Light.
