Essayist and Connector
I am the wife of a wonderful educator, the mother of five great kids and the grandmother of nineteen charming grandchildren. I love learning, teaching, reading, speaking, writing, photography and music. I want to discuss a variety of subjects such as: menus for a crowd, depression, cleaning tips, childhood anxiety, ideas for family gatherings, syndromes, positive psychology, drug abuse and whatever else comes up in this quandary of daily living.
If everything turns out just like I want it to, this website will be a gathering place for friends around the world. We will learn together, share ideas and encourage each other in our aspirations. Hope you’ll join me!
