TEMENOS (Greek: τέμενος)“a piece of land cut off and assigned as an official domain, especially to kings and chiefs, or a piece of land marked off from common uses and dedicated to a god, a sanctuary, holy grove or holy precinct.“

Mom always told me I was her ‘fey’ child, like a tea towel in the wind, never knowing where I would land. In my half-century upon this earth, I have spent my time exploring, learning, loving, working, reading, walking rural and urban streets, watched the death of loved ones, a marriage end, and it changed me.
Yet, in truth, all I’ve really ever wanted is to stay put, in one place, ideally here in the village. So in a way maybe this blog has become not about adventure, but about just being “here”, and solitude, and thought, and gardens, and woods. I am attracted to broken things that are becoming something else, as one may find hope there. This is my journal, a memoir sometimes, a place of pictures, poetry and stories, and definitely some opinions.
