I'm a stay-at-home mom with an active 7 year old son, 2 year old daughter, and darling husband. I value nearly forgotten skills, like sewing, embroidery, other handcrafts, and home skills like canning and gardening. I love spending time with my family, reading a good book, playing a good game (video or otherwise), disaster movies, Disney animation, anime, and manga, among other things. I am concerned about climate change, peak oil, our food supply, and the future of life on this planet. I am trying to live as lightly as I can, and hope others will join me on this journey, to ensure the future of coming generations.
