My name is Debra Argosy and I live in Bisbee, Arizona, a couple miles from the Mexican border. My neighborhood is not to be confused with Old Bisbee, eight miles from here and a world apart.
I’m originally from the east coast but moved out here in 2006 in search of a better life. At first it was better because it was different. Now it’s not. I’m an editor, proofreader, artist, and clean houses and do odd jobs as well to survive (see Painfully Employed). I live with a guy with health problems. My passion for animals is fierce (see My Pack and Philosophy). I’ve been an atheist since adolescence—it’s not a choice, so I am understanding of those who find comfort in their faith as long as they don’t force it on me.
I have a lot of thoughts on various subjects, mostly dealing with my work and the weirdness of daily life—with pictures. I hope to reach out and connect, especially if you’re a mutt, odd duck, underachiever, practitioner of autodidactism, obsessive-compulsive, a person who cries too much, or thinks you’re no good. Write me. You’re the best.
