Constant seeker, urban and suburban ex-patriate, Luddite-wanna-be-but-never-will-be, always striving for authenticity and simplicity… wife to the Tall Man and mother to Janka Fairy, Ferdinand, and Little Crazy Matas.  All of them born at home, raised fully at home, and educated at home.  Recent transplant to Pownal, VT and hoping to stay.  Still Conservative Quaker by convincement because it can hold my love of other Christian and Jewish mystical traditions, in particular the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Orthodox Christian Mysticism.  Attending the Orthodox Church as a family, in particular the ROCOR Church.  Trying to be a seamless WHOLE, intsead of always rejecting one part of myself or another.
