I am a writer with a background in science. I have a book (self-published) that was the outcome of studying psychology after studying geology, and getting hooked on Piaget in the process. I published a paper in 2009. I've done two surveys of barefooters. I have also written some screenplays (no sales yet) and am learning how to write songs, but mostly continue to do research related to my book.
September 27, 2016: I switched web hosts and am working on making sure everything is ok. Please be patient if there is a problem.
January 2016: I updated this page with my current location and a bit of other stuff.
July 2015: I added the genealogy page (link to the left) and links to a bunch of pdfs of my family history.
July 2015: I removed the CCQ from my website and analyzed the data a bit. That's all I'm going to do with this for a while (if ever).
June 2015: I removed the HBQ from the personality pages, even though it's the most popular scale, because it doesn't really have anything to do with what I'm trying to figure out. If you've taken it in the past you can still see your scores and delete them.
May 2015: A small update to my Your Eatopia post (scroll down to the bottom).
February 2015: I have updated the barefoot legal page in a couple of places (long overdue - did I say I was tired?).
Also, I have added an essay on why I had to leave Your Eatopia, an eating disorder website with private forums, because I felt the need to write it up. I don't know if anyone from there will ever find it or not. I don't really care right now.
I'm autistic, exceptionally gifted, and chronically unemployed. I'm always looking for another adventure to send my mind on as a distraction.
For fun, I like to explore new places and new cultures. Two of the most powerful experiences in my life involved crossing the country on the bus and starting over in a completely new environment: Ottawa to Vancouver in 1998 and Vancouver to Montreal in 2010.
I'm constantly fascinated by what makes people tick and how cultures work. My greatest passion as a child was mythology, and in a way, that's what I'm still studying. And learning to create now, as well.
I have been barefoot full time since July 9, 2009. Shoes were torture for me, and I find it much easier to walk now (except on gravel, sharp stones and snow). Update: I wear home-made moccasins with rubber soles in bad winter weather now that I'm in Edmonton, but still go barefoot the rest of the time.
My current legal name (since 1993): Anemone Cerridwen
Born: Sarah Anne Robertson, December 25, 1964 (10:25 pm EST, approx.)
I was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. I have also lived in Edmonton, Calgary, Pembroke (Ontario), Vancouver and Montreal, worked in northern Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in summer jobs, travelled almost the entire TransCanada highway at least once in each direction, and am currently back living in Edmonton.
