About

Just like I am, this space will be perpetually in progress.

I’ve done and been many things so far: university professor; experimental psychologist; massage therapist; proofreader; copy editor; developmental editor; writer; reviewer; ghostwriter; martial arts practitioner; knitter; flutist; cook, baker, and candymaker; traveller; teacher; small business owner; parent; and multiple times over, a blogger.

I’m perpetually curious, which has been both virtue and vice. After many years of disparaging myself for being an “overthinker”, I finally realized that I enjoy thinking—and especially thinking out loud with others who are similarly inclined. I’ll be recording some of my observations, ideas, and thoughts here partly to give me a record to return to, and also to engage with others who are of similar mind.

My tagline “I want to look at life in the available light” is not mine; it’s from the Rush song “Available Light”, from the 1989 album Presto. I am an unashamed huge fan, and may be quoting their lyrics often.

All links here are coded to open in the current tab, except for the YouTube and Twitter links in the menu at the top of each page; I think it’s best if you make the choice to change that or not.
