I was born and bred in the Bronx. I played in the alleys and sidewalks of New York. My view of nature was through visits to the Bronx zoo. My trendy and fashion forward mother and her new husband then moved our family across the map to a dusty desert town in California, where I lived until I could fight my way out after graduating from high school. Re-met my husband after we both divorced, having first met in 7th grade.
As a sudden turn of events, we kinda decided to move – to an island in the middle of the Fijian archipelago. Where we happily resided for 14 years until I could stand it no longer, and we moved back, settling in the state of Washington. And where this decidedly city girl is, kicking and screaming and spitting and clawing, becoming a reluctant farm girl.
