About Me

It is me – Lora Volwiler. Who am I? Daughter, sister, wife, artist, researcher, diviner of solutions … I am me. I will also add pot stirrer, book hoarder (although I prefer bibliophile), thread chaser, semi-computer geek, iPod owned, and weaver of things to the list.

I love to read – science fiction, comic books, fairy tales, and folklore. I recently have gotten into researching folklore and fairy tales back to their old school roots. I can turn into a true geek when I start talking about it. I wander into themes and archetypes. Discussing why they are active today.

When I am not reading, I am found in the kitchen making a “mess”. I follow tried and true recipes. I tweak things with a little this or that. There are the moments of wanting to make Potato Salad with sweet potatoes. I start replacing ingredients and adjusting things. This one is still in the marinate phase. I can make to-die-for cheesecake. My cookie jar is always filled with something. Bread is my other passion. (If I can only find some trusty minions to clean the kitchen when I am done, it would be fabulous.)

I create with textile and mixed media arts. I currently have at least one knitting project and cross stitch in the works. I recently found a few of my orphans. Therefore, I promise and solemnly swear to complete them before starting a new something.

I have just started writing. I am still getting the hang of this blogging thing. Wrangling text at work is so easy. Give me a topic or a document and I am cruising right along. Writing for myself … let’s just say that my muse must have a twisted sense of humor. It is not easy. I truly believe that it will organize the ideas in my head into a cohesive pattern.

I have the “knack”. You know the horrible thing all on Geeks have. I have fun playing with software. I am learning HTML just to make this canned page more me. I see rhythms and tides in documents. Things don’t break. They provide learning situations.

I am the curiosity that pounces a few lives out of the cat. I am a tinkerer. I am a dreamer, creatrix, solution finder. Mad woman with a magic wand. Computer djinn.  I am looking for a fabulous career step into the new and interesting.
