When I’m not spending time with my people (including the cat), I love writing, learning (all kinds of things!), creating & crafting, teaching yoga and fitness classes, and producing YouTube videos.

And, of course, reading…

‘All living languages exist in a state of tension between growth and decay. Languages change because playfulness and the desire to impress are universal human traits; they grow in response to technological innovation, cultural contact and social developments. Working against these impulses to the new are the forces of stability: inertia, the fear of being misunderstood, and the fixative effect of writing.’


‘Spelling is not important in itself, but it is a social marker enabling those who can spell to look down on those who can’t.


‘Remember that literacy is an accident of birth and does not confer superior wisdom or virtue.’

– The Editor’s Companion by Janet Mackenzie.
