I can lose myself in writing. Reading. Traveling. Plus there are the rescue dogs (right now, Shelby (rest in peace little Shel) Dory and Jack), a wonderful husband and friends far and wide. I’ve lived in
nine ten states, some of them more than once. New Jersey embodies childhood and DC welcomes me home. One day I hope to land again (for good?) in the Pacific Northwest.
I’ve worked in the nonprofit sector for more than twenty years, recently as an archivist at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. I am now a fundraiser/office manager at Hosparus (a regional hospice provider) in Louisville, KY. My favorite movie is Magnolia, and I can’t name a favorite book, there are so many. (See my reading list in this blog.) I never shy away from a discussion about politics. Fun fact: I sang at the White House one Christmas with a neighborhood madrigal group.
But enough about me. Let me tell you where the blog title comes from. Jim Nutter, Rector at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church in Houston, likes to say that God is not about drawing lines in the sand but rather about drawing circles around all God’s children. I tend to agree.
