See thou bring not to field or stone
The fancies found in books;
Leave authors' eyes, and fetch your own,
To brave the landscape's looks.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
May Day and Other Poems 1867
I believe in healthy living and fitness. As a single woman with grown children, I have plenty of time to indulge my interests and my work. Like everyone in my field...I am also an unpublished novelist! Travel excites me, and while I haven't been everywhere...I've been to many points in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. I find that travel brings exuberance and creativity to work. My most recent trip was to Russia. (pre-COVID!)
Some of the fun things I've done: Spoken in front of a crowd of 40,000 people;
jumped out of a plane at 14,000 feet; climbed Mt. Washington in New Hampshire (6600 vertical feet).
Interests include photography, hiking, biking
kayaking, writing. reading, cooking and
