An artist-naturalist splashes through streams of consciousness... often, it's even her own...

This Couch Is Past Its Capacity
From the left: Rick's arm, Dakota, Logan, Ginny, and Daddy. We're celebrating Kota's birthday in front of the Ohio State game (follow Daddy's gaze and you'll know where the tv is...) and having periodic spontaneous Tickle Fights of Ferociousness+70. Fun!!
I'm deliriously, happily married to Rick. We have a basenji named Cleopatra and 3 manic (as a result of the dog) cats. They all appear on the blog regularly, as does the garden. On occasion, you may mistake this for the local Ag Report, but I assure you I am an artist, and eventually my work will make an appearance.
In the meantime, I find enjoyment in life's daily distractions.
We work to be part of the solution in Cleveland as members of a giving circle called The Cleveland Colectivo, giving microgrants to grassroots neighborhood projects throughout Cleveland and the inner-ring suburbs.
Rick and I are avid bike riders, and we captain a BikeMS team called Patti's Paladins. Visit our team website pattispaladins.com to learn how you can help us fight Multiple Sclerosis. Join us for a ride!
