Having grown up on a small dairy farm ages ago, back when a family could feed itself and earn a living on 100 acres, I've moved around: volunteer, then staff work in Germany for six years, grad school at the U of Chicago in theology, married, had our second child and wrote my PhD thesis in Taiwan, was divorced, then taught theology at Bethany Theological and Colgate Rochester Divinity, and finally graduated to retirement, gardening and reading.  Managed to garden in about 18 of the places I had lived --- and now look forward to exploring what fruits and vegetables (and maybe even beauty we don't eat??!) we will nurture and be nurtured by in our shared, still-being-created new home.
