Knitting and reading in Oakland, California. These are notes from my happily imperfect life.

I have a kid (9 years old now).  And parents, and a husband, and a brother, and aunts and uncles and cousins and in-laws and friends…. I work as a public health nurse in TB Control, since 2001. I was born in the Bay Area, California. Moved to a farm in Wisconsin when I was five – we had sheep! and goats! and chickens! Moved to Birmingham, Alabama when I was thirteen. Moved back to the Bay Area in 1999. Technically native? (and we have chickens, and a rabbit, and a dog…)

I forget to live when and where I am.

Living leaves us with scars. May they be small, with good stories!
