I am a writer, a painter and for a long time, a bellydancer. I hand sew kimonos and am involved in a lot of Japanese and Middle Eastern study and writing. I love Japanese poetry and the translations of Persian poetry...marvel at how different they are. Currently, I am in an intense study of the 8th century Japanese document, the Man'yoshu. I have a lot of past interests, was a fencer and an apprentice falconer, but don't do that anymore. Hawking can be too intense...you have the responsibility of a nasty bird and they aren't loyal. Have published "Pitcher of Moon" in 2014 and "Song of the Nightingale", 2015. Both with Createspace, Amazon.com Am working on a collection of short stories and two novels.
