Origin of the Improvaho tradition
by Katherine M. Hunter
Deep within in us resides a place
where the Improvaho dwells (improvise a home)
This place functions in space / not time
Learns from passionate desire / not forced education
The Improvaho philosophy trusts and embraces Nature
as teacher and co-creator
Not only in artistic designs but
Love / Lust / Laughter / Lewdness and Luscious desserts.
The Improvaho Tradition encompasses a Way of Life
valuing full / varied / unpredictable situations
from hands-on / sometimes mythical / playful / joyous
and gut-wrenching experiences / etc
A favorite motto from the Improvaho:
“Happiness brings good fortune.”
(although many people think it’s the other
way around – too bad for them!)
Katherine M. Hunter was born December 15, 1933.
She skated down river on June 14, 2015.
She died the way she lived: with incorrigible flair /
curiosity / humor and gumption.
She wore many hats: Daughter, wife, mother,
grandmother, mother outlaw, friend, wise-ass
Matriarch, artist, writer, superb actress.
She loved cooking, knitting, weaving, painting,
gardening, animals and the best library in the world.
She spent the last 2-1/2 years of her life writing her
personal memoir: ‘Crazy, Sexy Dying –
Having fun while having cancer!’
Above all, she loved her family who she
devoted herself to without compromise.
She lived a diverse life from west coast to east
coast with Rome, Italy and Europe in-between.
May we follow her Improvaho Tradition by
walking the path with heart living each moment
as fully as possible.
Love all-waze from Kaki, Boody, Doni, Judy, Tom and Juanita.
