I live in Vermont, in the northeastern US (right between Boston and Montreal, but rural). The state is known for maple syrup, Ben & Jerry's ice cream, and Bernie Sanders.
I study herbalism, am rarely without a cup of tea, have a particular fondness for backpacks, and love different forms of storytelling, particularly theater. A favorite book is Tribe, by Sebastian Junger. Some day, (and this is only partly tongue in cheek) I aspire to be like Granny Weatherwax, from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.
In addition to living and traveling around the US (mostly New England and here and there out west), I've worked in Ireland and visited Italy, France, and South Africa, as well as Montreal.
I would love to hear about:
*an herbal recipe or home remedy
*your favorite word (in any language)
*the fairy tale or story you love the most
*where you recommend traveling to
*a favorite quote
I would especially like postcards showing:
*festivals or celebrations
*artwork, especially your own
*a scene that looks like home to you
