I have written personal essays about places, houses, and other musings for numerous magazines since 1990. I have blogged, contributed to local newspapers, written a few books––and for "shelter" magazines. I have worked in the historic house museum and preservation field as well as in non-profit public relations and publications. Writing and an interest in the history of place are the ties that bind in my life and career.
Now I rather live by this credo––a quote I discovered since living here on our farm [from Charles Dickens]:
"Cows are my passion. What I have ever sighed for has been to retreat to a (Swiss) farm, and live entirely surrounded by cows––and china."
[I've realized that you can never have too much china, or books, or even cows for that matter.]
