Hi, come on in, I’m Kathryn Hunter, world traveler, artist and former-under-the-bed-hider. I love my friends fiercely and sometimes put up with annoying people for too long. I hate to bargain, and I’m learning to be better at it. I try to remember to ask for what I want instead of expecting the world to just know. I’m learning my limits and figuring out what I want next.
I collect skills like some women collect shoes. I speak English (obviously), Spanish, and Swedish, all to varying degrees. I weave, knit, sew, spin. I design jewelry, dolls and fabric. I have a crazy number of ideas and probably try to act on too many of them, and I enjoy it.
The more people there are in a group, the quieter I get. Get me one on one and I become chatty, snarky, and sometimes raunchy. If you see a curly headed chick at a conference wearing a T-shirt imploring ‘I’m shy, please come talk to me. Thanks.’, there’s a good chance it’s me, and since I mean it, come on over.
I had a cozy life that I built for myself. Too cozy. It got to the point where it actually felt all smothery. I had protected myself from the world too well. So, now I’m on an adventure where I make an effort to stretch my comfort zone and then tell you stories about it. I hope my stories resonate with you, and help you in some way, but really, they help me too. This is where I process my experiments on myself, where I see what works for me and what doesn’t.
Hugs to you for getting this far. Please, pick a post you connect with, and introduce yourself, I’d love to meet you.
