"... a Molotov cocktail-throwing Brenda Starr."
- my old college adviser, with delight, on seeing me for the first time since 1974.
When people ask "what do you do?" my profession isn't the first thing that springs to mind. I do ... all kinds of things.
Things that interest me: live theater, photography, knitting, communication technology, the Internet as a force for change, Web accessibility, communicating science, cooking, gardening, the localvore movement, liberal politics, feminism, ebooks, speculative fiction, geeks, creativity, craft, intelligence, beauty, compassion, peace, living lightly on this earth.
I'm "following" a lot of people I don't actually know on G+ simply because they have interesting things to say. If you're among them, please don't feel obligated to add me to your circles (although you're welcomed, if you want to).
If you encircle me, don't take it personally if I don't reciprocate. Thanks largely to photography circle-sharing, I keep hitting the 5000-person max G+ sets on how many people we can encircle, and when that happens, I can't add more till I find time to do some house-cleaning.
I try to sort what I post according to who might be interested in it, although all my photography posts (the bulk of what I share) are public. Special interests that (mostly) get posted to select circles include:
- Knitting and yarn-crack
- Cooking and eating well. NOT about dieting/weight-loss.
My politics are decidedly left of center, and while I welcome intelligent, respectful conversation with people of other persuasions, I'm not interested in demagoguery of any stripe. In particular, if you are any brand of religionist bent on saving or converting me, someone who believes Fox has the only "true" news on television, a Tea-Partier or a raving Libertarian, do us both a favor and don't encircle me.
Life's too short to argue with people being Wrong On The Internet. Unless it involves snark.
