Today I am a person who loves to day dream, finds energy in my own thoughts and feelings. I have wonderful favorite memories that I go to when I am having a bad day. I am better at facing reality than I was when I was younger, however, I am not cynical. I like to think of myself as a peaceful, happy person who loves to laugh and have a good time. Even though I have retired from being a classroom teacher, I completely enjoy my business and art as a piano teacher of some 47 - almost fifty years now. My three beloved adult children live close to me, and I am blessed to be a fairly new grandmother. I wander and wonder in the world of writing, music, the art of teaching, the being of life, and grandmotherhood. I am indeed blessed. I even have a fun loving, humorous housemate!
