After a long break, I’m coming back to writing. My Dad says I exaggerate every story at the dinner table which results in a lot of criticism amongst family and friends. It works out ok on the page though. I grew up around a farm and I love working on and being connected to the land, especially through hard work, nature and the soothing force of cattle, horses and livestock. I have a sweet lab named Sampson, born into my family fabric and as you’ll soon learn in greater detail, I have a Corgi named Audrey, for whom this blog is named. I love to sing, especially old Jazz and Blues, Dinah Washington, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone over dishes or Sarah Britton’s recipes. I’m no-good at tennis but I absolutely love it. I feel rhythmical skiing in the mountains or on cross country ski trails and my brain quiets running and with long walks. I’m enamoured with a little yoga studio in Schomberg, called Country Zen. I studied literature and women in Africa, a great passion of mine and currently, I study psychiatry, privileged to learn with some Docs around the world. I don’t much know where I’m headed from here, but thanks for being with me for the now.
