Self-employed technical writer. Live on 26 acres in East Texas.
Enjoy reading, cooking, and the arts in general: sculpture, painting, and performing arts. Have two pets: a calico cat (who is going blind, poor thing) and a large stray dog that we think is all or part Rhodesian ridgeback.
I'm a native English speaker; also speak and read Spanish (though I'm a bit rusty), and speak a bit of French.
The type of travel and vacation I want depends upon where I'm going. Sometimes the beach and sun are fun (I haven't had a beach vacation in a while), sometimes I prefer museums and the like. Sometimes I'll pamper myself with more upscale accomodations, upscale restaurants, and maybe a massage or spa treatment (usually when I travel domestically)...other times I'm looking for the least expensive option with only the basic comforts. I do like having some of the comforts of home, but I don't have to have all of them.
