I am 50. I have a college degree that I cannot use. I love to write. I love to recycle and invent new uses for old materials. I love to make tie-dye material. I must be an old hippie. I am out of work by choice, the work available to me is so limited that I choose not to work in a standard workplace.<br /> <br /> I was a chemist for years, many kinds of chemistry. Now I cook instead, much more fun, and you can eat the quality control.<br /> <br /> I grow MOSS. It grows itself really, veeeery slowly. But oh what a beautiful tiny yet monumental thing it is.<br /> <br /> I hate to sew, but love to design clothes, and rescue fabric, I guess I am a fabric SHELTER. <br /> <br /> I am a mess, but happy to be here.
