"When an American says that he loves his country,
he means not only that he loves the New England hills,
the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains,
the great mountains, and the sea.
He means that he loves an inner air,
an inner light in which freedom lives
and in which a man
can draw the breath of self-respect."
I work in the field of aging & am passionate about helping people discover & nurture their creativity. I am a mixed-media artist (well, almost-artist), have worked as a faux finisher & decorative painter, and am a novice dragonboater.
I create, craft, sew, paint, write, encourage, think, talk, talk, talk! I am a mother, wife, grandmother, friend, sister, daughter, aunt, and more . . .
