“You would also do well to remember that what I say and how you perceive what I say can be completely different depending upon your awareness of yourself and the level of skill you have attained.”
Miyamoto Musashi translated by Stephen F. Kaufman

About Me

  • I am a real (I think) person (though I’ve been told I am not from here).
  • I write here for myself though it’s nice if you come across something of interest to you.
  • I am a Yoga practitioner
  • I had a career in software technology that ended on a satisfying note of design in service of human beings.
  • I had a magical meeting with photography
  • Purpose brought me to rural Romania where I live mostly in retreat at Bhudeva where I am exploring how to create a warm and embracing home.
  • I created and am keeper of story at Cutia Taranului (Peasant Box) – helping Romanian peasants sell their food directly to customers in cities.
  • I have been held by and try to hold a space for a more feminine world.
  • In recent years my heart feels increasingly whole when I look inside and broken when I look around.
  • I like wearing grey.
