Thank you for visiting.
Since I write about my experiences, I figure it would be a good idea to give you an idea of who I am. I am a high school business teacher by trade. I taught typing and shorthand. I taught a course about how to operate business machines that no longer exist!
I am a Baby Boomer. I was born in the last century. It was the twentieth century after all; we are not talking about the Stone Age!
Somewhere along the way, I discovered that I really loved working with adults. I migrated to teaching business school and community college. I loved working with women and empowering them with marketable skills, so they could support themselves and their families.
For someone who never left New England until the age of 20, I have earned a lot of incentive trips. Those trips have been all over the United States including the Hawaiian islands of Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island! I have earned trips to Monaco, Tahiti, Bermuda, St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Antigua, Grenada, Italy, Turkey, Greece, Croatia, and Spain. You get the idea.
If you are still reading, my motivation for this page has been to give you some background as to where I’ve been and where I’m going. I started writing when I was in high school. I never painted until I was retired and discovered I loved it.
My Favorite Quote:
“It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.” – Henry David Thoreau
