Those of you know know, love and/or follow me may already be aware of the string of calamities that led directly to the creation of this temporary page.

For those who don't know what's going on:

Three years ago, I made the very hard decision to leave Colorado and an unhealthy marriage. My last nestling had flown the coop and I was attached to someone who was not good for me. It took me a year to get the move together.

End of August 2012: Second day of truck loading, I took a harsh tumble down a flight of stairs and wracked my feet and ankles considerably. Damaged an already wonky hip. Arrived in a Napa County redwood forest and settled into a lovely little cabin with my cat, Leroy, at least a ton of books and art, a humble quiver of guitars, the will to reinvent my world and two broken feet.

Life reinvention was precisely what needed doing, and I was doing a GOOD JOB of that. I kept the writing gig I'd had for 5+ years and was making a nice little life for myself until the end of January, 2014.

The same day, two major ROTTEN THINGS happened. In the morning, the web developer I'd been writing for disappeared. I did not receive my last week's pay. That afternoon, my 20 year old car died a mile from my cabin, in the rain, in the twilight.

I have since tapped into enough freelance work to keep a humble roof above my head. Despite the fact that I work very hard every day, I cannot afford surprise car repairs. As I start this page, the car's in the shop being diagnosed.

I love where my cat and live, but it's more than inconvenient to dwell on this mountain with no way off; it's dangerous. I am in a fire alert zone and beyond nervous.

Now I just need find a way to pay the mechanic. 

Your not-as-low-down-as-you-might-think friend,
