Bedroom is cozy but not cramped, with a skylight looking into the nearby treetops, an organic cotton futon on a cherry wood bed-frame. The adjoining sunny upstairs lounge features large windows looking out into the giant ferns and mixed woods forest.
Quiet time should be observed between 9:00 PM and 6:00 AM. No shoes in the house, so please bring your favorite slippers or bare feet.
I have traveled and lived abroad, visiting my mother's relatives and as a high school exchange student. One of my favorite trips was a month spent in Japan, a combination of home stays and small inns, to study and play taiko (Japanese drumming). Person-to-person culture exchanges are the bridges to a peaceful world.
My professional life includes working as a hospice nurse and researching issues relevant to hospice care. For fun I teach taiko, bake my own bread, and can be found outside, caring for the organic vegetable and flower gardens with which I have been blessed.
