Story
Tagline
There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth. ~Rumi
Introduction
light chaser, wanderlust gypsy, clay slinger, paint splasher, word crafter, sacred journaler, beauty unveiler, adventure seeker and soul feeder.

 Part time renaissance woman part time juggler and full time dreamer, I’m an unashamed coffee snob dancing on the precipice of my whims.
