Main love is music, singing…beautiful sound of all kinds. I have a crystal singing bowl collection, a hang, a frame drum, and a voice that moves people. Other things I especially love: cooking and eating great food, experiencing scents and colors, caring for plants, big trees and forests, meeting people and learning about different cultures, and reading well-written books. I am the mother of two beautiful teenage daughters. I grew up on a farm in the US midwest, and have since lived and worked in six other countries. I speak English, Japanese, and German.
