Scott & I have been married since 2010. We like to hike mountains, run races, keep bees, eat good food, drink well-crafted beverages, check out weird and wonderful places, and travel to new cities. We are particularly happy whenever we find ourselves in bookstores, or with brunch on the table, or listening to jazz, or surrounded by interesting architecture. 

Rounding out our family are 2 lady cats with less camaraderie than Felix Unger and Oscar Madison.

The name “Unbidden Grace” is related to a quote by my favorite author, Oliver Sacks, who thus described his experience of re-learning how to walk after suffering a severe accident:

“Grace, unbidden, appeared on the scene, became its center, transformed the scene. Grace entered, at the very center of things, at its hidden innermost inaccessible center, and instantly coordinated, subordinated, all phenomena to itself. It made the next move obvious, certain, natural. Grace was the prerequisite and essence of all doing.”(Oliver Sacks, 1984, A Leg to Stand On)

May we live a life transformed by grace, and in this grace find the essence of all doing.
