I am a reader and a writer, a tea-drinker, an art-lover, and an amateur of many things: cooking, baking, gardening, photography. I am an anglophile, a feminist, and a literature snob. I dream of faraway travel and local knowledge: being able to name all the birds and trees in my Pennsylvania landscape. I love baseball, my two cats, reading in the bath, and long hikes in chilly weather.

This journal is mostly friends-only, but I am always happy to meet new people. Say hello.
