Thank you for your email. Please understand if it takes a few to get back to you. 



I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


Notable Bits


* Wearing half-chaps (those "top part of the boots" looking business) makes me feel Fancy, especially when said half-chaps are worn and scuffed, extra supple and fit like a glove.
* On the backside of those jeans now exists a horse-nostril-shaped smear in alfalfa-green that will most likely never fully come out. I don't mind.
* That orange croissant in the background is actually a kitty boy getting his "Thank God we finally got to go out for the day" roll on.
* What you can't see are my bones, which feel light as air today, like they might pick up and dance themselves a little jig just because they can. I think that's what riding does to my heart.

The Elusive Shower Beer

The Elusive Shower Beer. Yep, that's inside the curtain, all steamy and sweet-smelling of calendula and lemongrass.
It's almost like all of you are in this old claw-foot tub with me.
