This picture my brother-in-law drew of me is a pretty accurate introduction. That’s me in the chair. Actually, I AM the chair. One eye is on a book, the other is on one of the many cats that add a touch of wild chaos to our surroundings. I am hemmed in on all sides by books, one of my paintings is on the wall, and I’m reading and drinking coffee — with one hand! Well, that last part is aspirational. But I'm making progress.
