Who am i?

an introduction to holli p.

Like most people, i am many things….
A book/film nerd
A connoisseur of fine foods & stinky cheeses
A kick-ass mom (can i say that about myself?)
An amateur writer & photographer
And a horrible, horrible speller.

But most of all, I’m a gypsy.
I’ve always wanted to be a settled person, with a daily routine and lots of animals to tend. Esp goats…i love goats!  Oh, and chickens. I love them too!  I’ve tried it a few times, and i’ll try it again one day, but i’m not a settled person.  I usually fail miserably.  Oh well…..

utah feet gibran quoteFor the past 16 years (minus a few extended “vacations”) i lived in central Alaska, in a lovely little self-built rustic cabin.  Propane lights, generator supplied power, wood-fired heat,  and no running water (except for the kind you run-and-get). The whole back-woods kit&caboodle life style.
Simple. Beautiful.  And a shit-ton of work.
Living in Alaska was a childhood dream of mine. While there i met my husband & we half raised our two gypsy kids (still a few years to go to complete that task).

Dream Accomplished. Time for the Chapter 3 (Alaska was chapter 2, Post childhood).

Now I’m off to discover the ins and outs of our new town, Madras Oregon, and to re-learn how to live in “normal” society.  (Cause you forget that after so long in the woods….).

This is who i am…….according to a few fabulous people.

A well-traveled, small town girl with a kind heart, creative spirit, understanding personality, and thirst for adventure. A great involved mother that instills her children (who are amazing humans) with consciousness and dreams. An actively caring community member, and genuinely understanding friend. Someone that sees the black and white facts of matters and paints a colorful dream of activity to pursue accomplishing the goal.    That’s who I think you are.

You are one of my favorite people on the planet. You can quote me if you like.
Nick Condon ~ actor, improver, & director ~ from all over the place

You’re an awesome, creative, kind spirit! ♡  FYI: you’d be adorable in a cape.
