“Are you really as happy as you seem?” I’m asked — often. Yes, I am.

Is every moment bliss? Not every moment. I can feel down and occasionally worthless.

But I don’t stay there long. Not long at all.




Come have a cuppa with me in my garden. Enjoy the plants, critters, and people who gather here, discovering the delights of simple living and the wisdom the earth shares with us.
