About me

Industry Education
Occupation Teacher, retired
Location Alto, New Mexico, United States
Introduction My husband and I live in the cool, spectacular mountains of southern New Mexico, not far from the heat of White Sands. I love to paint, and if I haven't had a chance to paint today I am restless. I haven't settled on a subject area I like to paint so my choice of subject tends to be eclectic, although I've noticed a few extra flowers in the mix lately.
Interests painting, teaching, technology, reading, photography, sewing
Favorite Movies I like movies like The Proposal, but I'm still around if my husband is watching one of the Bourne movies. Sully was good and so was Money Ball.
Favorite Music Christian Pop, Moonlight Sonata
Favorite Books The Aviator's Wife, Alex & Me, Sweet Salt Air, The Testament, Steve Jobs, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, The Longest Ride

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?

I didn't have science teachers until high school. Warming the petals would have not occurred to me. Now, I might want to see the cracks and the shape of the smashed petals.
