I am a writer and editor who plays and creates with English and Spanish words. I keep my mind busy reading, researching and studying about people's cultures and languages, science and the why of things. I'm passionate about cats and politics..in that order. I am still trying to figure out why so many people want to live the present by the past. Travel, cooking, sewing, dancing, watching an intelligent film or getting hooked by a good book are my guilty pleasures.
