Biography

i am (still) a middle-aged-going-on-13 mother of two beautiful and intelligent daughters who have gone away to college. i live with my poet in a little old pink cottage in a small city in kansas. i disguise myself as a university employee each day, but in reality i am an artist, a dreamer and a wanderer.

my official journal can be found h e r e (http://www.cobaltika.com/journal - why does typepad make that bad link?), but i keep this one somewhat active to post new images and announcements and to link to my favorite typepad journals. who knows? maybe i will someday use it full time...
