I’m Lory — known to some from my other blog, The Emerald City Book Review.

I live with my family in the beautiful Bernese Jura region of Switzerland, where I work part-time in a residential home for adults with developmental disabilities.

I’m a certified ESOL teacher offering online lessons, and I also speak French and German. Besides reading and writing, I enjoy fiber crafts (spinning and knitting); music, especially choral singing; and hiking in the mountains.

I’m interested in prayer and contemplative practice, and I sometimes share thoughts from my spiritual journey.

Welcome! I look forward to meeting you.
