A little about me;


I am plant-based, chemical-free, substance-free, practice harmlessness and self-responsibility, and would resonate with others practicing the same. I rise at 5 am and go down at 8 pm and am mostly quiet except for teaching and consulting online and occasional dance breaks. I relish hearing mostly natural sounds. As a plant person, a plant myself, I would flourish with some morning sun, well ventilated, high and dry, and not so well in a wet low valley. I prefer a longer-term place to grow, not so much a temporary or transient one.
