Tell us about yourself:
Born in a convent (long story), I graduated high school with honors. The same year, I took 2nd place in a state fencing championship. I am a certified sailor and kyacker and play a decent round of golf for a “senior.” I love nature, whether my hands are in the dirt or my feet are tramping all over it. I’ve lived in many states and work periodically took me outside of the U.S. A life-long learner, I’m an avid writer and reader of many genres. Music is a huge part of my day. Currently, I am teaching myself how to play the piano. Fortunately, I can read music (another story).
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
As a retiree, I started a book publishing business to get eager authors’ works up on Amazon. I’ve acquired mucho computer skills over time and often find myself in situations where I can share what I’ve learned with others. I’ve been tutoring pro bono young and old alike on a myriad of subjects for about 50 years.

1988

My husband and I decided to take that Valentine Friday off. So, upon returning home from work on a Thursday, my husband met me at the door. He had a bandana wrapped around his head and looked pretty serious about something. He also refused to let me ...

You could say that I’ve dedicated myself to continuous learning. At 55, I earned a Master’s Degree to pursue a new career in education. Twenty years later, I still make a conscious effort to expand my scope by learning new things. I will seize every ...

MLK Day reminds me that as a nation, we still aren’t doing enough to balance and equalize social justice in America. Martin Luther King was a learned and profoundly spiritual man. He was also Black, but he never referred to his race. When he spoke, h...
