  • Description


    I am a retired teacher living with my German Shepherd, Aisha, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I live 5 minutes from the center of town. Santa Fe is a cultural hub of art, music, museums, and restaurants. We have a rich history of Native American, Spanish and Anglo cultures. My home is in the foothills of the Santa Fe National Forest, convenient for hiking, biking and skiing. My daughter and her 3 year old son live next door to me. My property is an urban farm environment with chicken, bees, garden and fruit trees.
