Mukashi mukashi (a long time ago) a redhead from Idaho moved to Japan and fell in love with the people, the culture, and the religious traditions, but after a while she was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to the United Kingdom and left Japan to study comparative religions on another island in a different part of the world. Since then, she has adopted children, gone on many adventures, and circled back to Idaho, where she writes poetry, essays, and novels, attempts some tiny farm projects, dances hula with Hula Creations, and (still) studies religion & culture.
