They have lived here in an off-grid solar home, that Richard built and gale designed, for 25+ years. They have a grown and talented son, Matthew, whom they adore. She is currently involuntarily unemployed but believes in life as a Work of Art. gale uses this blog as a way to practice sublime appreciation everyday.
