An art teacher, a carrot plucker, a mal-content, visionary and evolving friend. I live in an apple orchard on the beautiful central coast of California, and have noticed a cultural connection between Northern California and New England. It grows a curiosity in me for a heritage I barely know I have. My connection is to a mainline church, but I am sensing a pull towards Friends' community. My ancestors were Quaker, I just learned a few years back. Perhaps my yearnings will lead me toward the East Coast, though I'm open to working in Africa for a while.
