Please visit my website: magicalbeadstalk.com. I'm a transplanted Canadian, living with my partner Elaine and two dogs in Holyoke, MA, having recently moved from the Northampton/Easthampton area of MA. I have been a college professor, psychotherapist and antique dealer. Currently I work full-time as a jewelry designer, which is much easier on my soul. Experience and life have brought me to a good place - I appreciate all that I have and the people that I love and those that love me. Simplicity and compassion are always my goals. Not that I am necessarily able to achieve them.
