Timeline of Activity:

I believe my first event was a Beltane in 1999. Didn't go great. Swore to my then husband I wouldn't never go to one of these things (an event) again. That lasted until Ansteorran 20th Year in Canton. Went better.

Played with the Canton of Dragonsfire Tor until July 2005. Left for personal reasons and didn't play again for a couple of years. Returned to the Society at Dragonsfire Tor Yule Revel (2007 I think). Started playing with Shire of Loch Ruadh and stayed with them until the Shire's dissolution. Been with the Barony of Elfsea since.

I've painted and calligraphied two peerage scrolls but enjoy painting charters most.

Back in my DFT days I enjoyed blacksmithing with the local group.

I took up archery in the fall of 2019.

Special Needs

I have a bad back, bad hips, and bad knees. I can't walk far at one time. I sometimes need to walk with a cane or staff. I don't kneel very well. I can't stand for very long either.
