Left the city and moved to Vermont five years ago.
I have a house, a husband, and 20 acres but no mule.
I'm learning the lessons that Vermont has to teach: self-reliance, patience, and flexibility. Technologist by day, and writer, photographer, cheesemaker, and serious cook by night. In Vermont, I'm finally using the training I've had: cooking from Madeleine Kamman, cheesemaking from Jim Wallace, and gardening from my years on the North Shore. I've paid my dues and am living in paradise. Till the power goes out.
