Hi, I'm Carole and welcome to my blog! Nomadic by nature, I reside in both Denver, Colorado and Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have many interests, so I am primarily a personal blogger who writes about food, travel, photography (digital, polaroid, & film), animals, culture (art, film, literature, etc.), design and gardening—not necessarily in that order.
I'm also an avid fan of ice hockey, having played both coed and women's hockey as a left-wing forward. My favorite team is the Colorado Avalanche and the two players that inspired me the most are Peter Forsberg and Joe Sakic.
I'm in the nascent stages of blogging but I am very excited to write about my varied interests and share my photographs which are tiny snippets from my daily life and my travels.
By profession, I am a literary researcher specializing in American and Native American Literature. Because I'm curious, I enjoy exploring, learning, thinking and writing about the myriad of subjects that I'm thinking about at the moment.
The idea for my blog's name comes from my desire to impart a sense of the old "literary salons" where many topics were discussed amongst friends and my dog, Maisie, who was one of my soul dogs. She was named after the Henry James story What Maisie Knew. While she is no longer with me, she continues to live on in my heart. Once you get to know me, you'll discover that I am an avid dog and cat lover and have a great, great love of travel.
Originally from California, I am proud of my Native American heritage from the Southern California Luiseño tribe. I'm also joyous to be a cancer survivor!
I look forward to you joining me on this journey!!!
