I am a single woman who lives in Illinois. My interests include herbalism, crafting jewelry, yoga, gardening, and tarot. My lifelong heroes are Emerson and Thoreau, and my favorite writers include Marcel Proust, John Cowper Powys, Jack Kerouac, and Oscar Wilde. I have several ridiculously arcane ambitions, including cultivating chrysanthemums in the best tradition of a Chinese sage and practicing an authentic Epicurean lifestyle. My other interests include French language and literature, wabi sabi, cloud patterns, Shakespeare's romances, full moons, light and shadows, Aquarian energies, reading obscure and recondite books, and chasing chimeras. And I like to drink tea.
I prefer to give this book away free, not because it is a junk book, but because I hate money. I already have too much money, and what I need is less money. I also believe that all information should be free and available to every single human being on planet earth without restriction. Have fun and enjoy.
