Welcome to my space!

Head shot“Please don’t let me stop thinking and start blindly, frighteningly accepting, afraid to experience pain; and never shut myself up in a numb core of non-feeling, or stop questioning and criticizing life and take the easy way out. To learn and think, to think and live, to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding and new love.”

–Sylvia Plath

My name is Julie and I’m an American ex-pat living in Yorkshire.  I’m a book lover, avid walker, culture fan, amateur baker and digital marketer. This blog reflects my interests and has resisted my many attempts to refine and narrow the focus. It meanders, taking the scenic route, revelling in the journey without being overly worried about the destination. Care to join me?
