In Her Own Words….
“when i was reading a book to my son the other day, one of the characters, a wombat, said that he liked to think and he liked to dig. i guess that’s a bit like me. i too like to think and to dig, especially come summer, but then digging snow in the winter is good too… most of the time i’m pretty mesmerized by the world and by the people in it. the state we’re all in today is a pretty stunning thing to contemplate if you have five minutes! when i’m not digging i love to spend as much time as possible near trees and to travel (my family is still wondering when i will find my way back home to new zealand). i like being involved in community activism, spending time on my own (rarely happens) and reading. i spend too much time in front of the computer and eat an inordinate amount of dark chocolate each day.”
