I’m a thirty-something Anna, living in the Denton area of Texas.

I’m recently relocated to North Texas and sharing a house with a partner (The Gentleman) and his two kids (Teenager and Girl Child).  I love cooking, crafting of all sorts, writing, reading, and all kinds of other things. I used to play in the SCA and want to get back to it. I recently obtained a (digital) piano, and have started playing again after 15 years away from the instrument. I take virtual lessons, which is honestly the most fantastic invention of 2020. I play D&D (mostly 5E) a lot, and I am the senior druid emeritus of Nine Waves Grove – I’m also an ordained priest for an American Druidry tradition called ADF. I have recently started Blue Heron Protogrove here in North Texas, but that’s a work in progress.

I have a heritable connective tissue disorder (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome – EDS) and PTSD/Bipolar 1/GAD. I am being treated for all of these things and have an excellent team helping me manage them.
