This may come as a bad surprise for many people, but I don’t cook. I simply don’t enjoy cooking. I do sometimes throw frozen food in the microwave, though, if that can be considered cooking.
When I was growing up, my mom did all the cooking. She cooked everything until the day I left home when I was 19. I moved in with my boyfriend, and he did all the cooking until our divorce in 2010. My next boyfriend did the cooking, again. Then, when I met my second husband in 2015, he did all the cooking. He still does it.
I have tried cooking before and I’ve made some delicious meals. My husband John was very impressed and enjoyed the food I made. However, I am not interested in cooking, and I do not find it to be fun or enjoyable in any way, other than the process of eating the food afterward.
John is 31 years older than I, so if I outlive him, I will have no choice but to cook my own meals. I am not looking forward to that. But, I can’t live off microwave food forever.
I've been making art since I was a child in the 1980s. I started with traditional media. Then, I began to make digital art on the family's Apple IIe computer in the early 80s. Between 1995 and 1996, when I was a senior in high school, I was the art club president.
In 2005, I started to make fractals. In 2021, I began making other digital art forms as an adult.
I write music and improvise every now and then. I've been doing this since I first played a guitar and piano when I was a child. I also like to make loops and beats.
I wrote a few haiku and senryu poems when I was younger. Unfortunately, I didn't save them. On May 30, 2022, I started to write them frequently and have been saving them in multiple places. I've also written some haibun and some flash memoirs. I hope to learn more about writing poetry and flash and microfiction as time passes. My goal with this website is to publish my art, fractals, poetry, music, and writing. I will also share other images, poetry, or writings that are in the public domain.
My writings, poetry, fractals, music, and art are copyrighted by me and may not be used in any way without my written permission.
