Native of Kentucky and Ohio. Student of Christianity, religion, democracy, sexuality, suffering/healing, and gender. Lover of animals, my cats, books, my sweet babies, my family, and cozy, warm homes. Interested in how to make the world a more just and loving place, and in trying to be less serious and more fun. I am both amazed and intrigued by the ways that we journey through this life and make sense of it all and envision this (now occasional) blog as place to reflect on all of the above.
