About Me

40-something, late-diagnosed autistic (Asperger’s) female, living in Portland, Oregon. I am married to a wonderful man who is my better half in all the ways I need him to be, but that he rarely appreciates in himself.

She/her pronouns, pantheistic, deep-thinking, draw-er of connections, observer and lover of humanity, supporter of all the proverbial “little guys,” trauma-informed survivor, temporary inhabitant of Earth, third planet from our sun, Milky Way galaxy.
