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.
