Besides writing, I spend my days absorbed in a number of activities. Not sports. I hate sports. This probably stems from the fact that, at a very young age, it became clear to everyone that I wasn't good at any of it. I can't throw, I can't catch, and I only run if it’s to the store when I'm out of coffee. However, there are certain activities I relish, almost to the point of obsession. The first is my garden. I don't have a yard at all; everything is garden. When it rains, I go inside and rebuild my house, tearing apart the old and starting from scratch. Please take a look at some of what I've done here in my Michigan home.
