Introduction To blog or not to blog, that is the question.... Some times we hear the sound in the forest when the tree falls, sometimes not, so I figure- one is never too old to try new things... to learn, and to continue to grow forth. I too will try.... Life is a discovery process, and with it our mutual search for peace in our hearts, and in our world at large. Love and, acceptance is the key. Thus is my path, my life's work. As of February 2011, it has been nine months since leaving the nursing profession of which I had worked for numerous decades. Nine months is a true gestional time of fruitfulness for many a woman, of which I am blessed and thankful to be among. Due to the knowledge and skills mastered along this path with the uncountable human experiences, that I had shared in, in this very special and ancient nurturing profession, I have been blessed with having further developed a sensitivity to peaceful solutions in all matters. "May Peace Prevail On Earth", in all languages.
Interests Reading, painting, working in the Peace Garden & community peace projects, creating art, prose, & poetry. Sharing mutual intrests with family & friends.
Favorite Movies Alice's Restaurant, Dr.Zhivago, The Cats of Merkamtomi-[the best documentary I've ever seen!] & last but not least-Train, Planes & Automobiles [it always gets us laughing!]
Favorite Music All sorts, especially of the 60's, Broadway Show Tunes, & some jazz... Stevie Wonder who's always @ the top of any list.
Favorite Books War & Peace, The Red Tent, The Shell Seekers, The Kite Runner, A Child's Garden of Verses, the Frog & Toad books, The Giving Tree & The Lestor & Louise series, which is soon to be *published & coauthored w/ a dear friend & moi.

The squish of mud between your toes; how would you live your life as a frog?

Actually I wouldn't live my life as a frog, because my totem animals are-- turtle & penguin. The turtle in me is slow & methodical & the penguin in me is a bit of a party gal. All this makes perfect sense to me as I am a Gemini after all.
