Living in the land of enchantment, hello DU

I have been here quite awhile, but never could get an email from DU until I got a new address.

My name is Linda and I am retired from civil service for the department of defense.

I breed birds, make jewelry, grow heirloom tomatoes, lilies, and photograph all of it. I have a three year old Brussels Griffon female, who is my heart. She is my child along with my 20 birds.

I choose to live alone, not because I have no other options, but because that’s how I want it. I am selfish with my time, energy, and space. I know this and do not see it as a flaw; I see it as the way to have a place without any outside noise or drama, which is integral to my inner peace.

Oh did I forget, I am a progressive and a political junkie.

This is just a short intro, I'm sure we will get to know each other more as the time goes by.

You live in a wonderful state. I was in Taos last summer and will be back in June to spend some time on the Enchanted Circle. Welcome again.

That was a nice introduction. I have always wanted to get a little parakeet, but they seem like almost as much work as a dog from the websites I have been reading. Maybe one day I will take the plunge!

I respect your wanting to be alone, I'm kind of that way too.

I hope you're not disappointed with your experience on DU, so far.
