I am a writer, foodie, gardener, yarn tangler, licensed clinical social worker, and married middle aged feminist progressive who is the mother of sons. I live in the Kansas City metropolitan area and frequently talk about what's going on here that's fun to do, as well as writing about the experience of living a life full of life as a feminist, a woman, and a human being. The goal of my writing is to increase both Gross Domestic (and International) Happiness (GDH) and individual happiness, and I love what I do. If you like what you see, follow me on Twitter as @odanu.
