One of the ways my family connects is through animals. We all are amazed by them and the ways that they communicate with each other and with us. We walk our dog and play with our cats, frequently visit a cat shelter to help socialize the cats, view swans and ducks on the lakes, listen to barred and great horned owls at night, as well as the occasional howl of coyotes, marvel as eagles soar and swoop over our kayaks, and visit the wildlife rehabilitation facilities and zoos.

Unlike the simple living models I’ve followed from an early age, I don’t live in a rustic cabin in the Alps, or in charming Concord, Massachusetts, or in Avonlea. I live in a small suburban house from the mid-80s that lies in a flourishing lawn of creeping charlie surrounded by my homemade landscape and garden. My husband Thom, daughter Mari, and I enjoy books, learning, cooking, the great outdoors, and our cats and dog. As I’ve experienced and observed my life, I’ve evaluated what brings me happiness and where to spend my life energy. I look forward to exchanging thoughts and ideas with you.
