About me: I am a retired professor who is a published poet and writer in the isolated woods of N central Florida. I live on 7 acres of hardwoods partically clearned about 2 acres for my living within the space in my 2 story handbuilt home of cypress, cedar, pine, and redoak floors.

I can say now that the Amazon-girlie- warrior lives on in me and my home! I loe all white, on white, creams, ecrus, pale whispers pinks, lace, linen( I use a 112 year old estate bought linen-lace tablecloth for my bedspread with whipser pink pillows and have white antique wicker for the furniture, even the writing desk is wicker. My mistress suite is upstaris and there are two old French doors of wood painted white! that open onto a 16 X 20 screened in balcony with white weashed painted floor and white railing , dotted with antique wicker and fabrics. I live in a woodland scnatuary, where carnials and rattlers alike come to peck and crawl across the landscape.
