about me (and M.E.)

 i'm a 30-something devotee of vintage, of the sentimental and the soulful, the meaningful and handmade.  i'm a lover of nature and organic forms.  i've been a keen amateur photographer ever since i can remember, and more recently i've been embracing my addictions to textiles and other creative outlets.   

i'm also someone who has been living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (otherwise known as CFS) and Fibromyalgia for more than half my life...gulp.  

  i have two 'mirror' blogs:  turn your face to the sun is about the creative side of my life, the myriad of beautiful things which affirm my love of this world and distract me from what is going on in my body.  Life in the Shadows, on the other hand, has more of a focus on the M.E. part of my reality.
