About Me

All I can say is that I am a very happily retired teacher who has always loved reading and music and the arts and who after retiring and finding myself with the time that I simply didn't have before, discovered that I love writing and photography as well.

Up until then just about the only writing I did was report card comments, notes to parents and teachers, and academic-type writing -- editing, term papers, dissertation, that sort of thing. As an English major I definitely knew how to type and how to spell. But except for reading it and studying it, poetry wasn't even a blip on my radar screen.

I've been married for almost 40 years and have three wonderful children and two young grandsons.

I play the violin and belong to our church orchestra which is the size of a community orchestra. After not playing for about 20 years I got involved with this orchestra about 25 years ago and not a day goes by that I don't pick up my fiddle and fiddle around with it.

And I love dabbling in other instruments as well -- mandolin, ukulele, guitar, penny whistle, and such. I'd certainly love to master all of them but I'm really just a dabbler.

I love all kinds of music, classical, folk, Celtic of all types, American roots music, all kinds of music.

November's nights are deeply dark ... this whole month is dedicated to shadows and all which has to die, outside and inside .... to finally let the light shine more and more ... Have a great day/night ... With Love ♥

It's a time we like to stay cosy, close to a fireplace, with a cat at our feets, a good book, and a cup of tea or chocolate ... I love this mood ... wish you a beautiful day/evening .... Kisses ♥

C'est le moment où nous aimons rester confortablement, près du feu, un chat à nos pieds, avec un bon livre, un thé ou un chocolat ... j'adore cette ambiance ... je vous souhaite une bonne journée/ soirée ... Bisous ♥

At the window, I see the Spirit of November ... He sings through the trees, cry with the gusts of wind, and whispers at my ear 'Nature is more alive than ever' ... Beautiful week end my friends ♥

A la fenêtre, je vois l'Esprit de Novembre ... Il chante à travers les arbres, pleure avec les rafales de vent et murmure à mon oreille ' La Nature est plus vivante que jamais' ... Beau week end chers amis ♥
