I’m a creative — defined as a person who “is creative, typically in a professional context.” This suits me as I have spent my professional life as an author, writer, photographer and gardener.
When I’m not working, I pursue other creative outlets. In the winter, I spend time oil painting. When the weather warms, my focus changes to the great outdoors: kayaking and gardening. The Adirondack Mountains are nearby and I have been told there are 3,000 lakes, rivers and streams there. My goal is to explore as many as I can. This is the best kind of adventure. You never know what flora and fauna you will see next.
Gardening is a big part of my summer as well. In addition to working in community gardens helping others grow food, I grow fruits, flowers and vegetables and cook for the pleasure of my family and friends. And, I help others design gardens that suit their lifestyles.
This blog is about these things.
