Writer, traveler, and cancer survivor. Get out there and live life!
I am a sixth generation Texan, named for a multi-great grandmother who arrived in Texas in 1836 weeks before the battle at the Alamo. I grew up in Mississippi and New Orleans, have lived in both Seattle and Manhattan, and finally moved back to Texas in 1990’s.
I have a darling teenage daughter who heads off to university in the fall of 2017. I have been divorced and am now widowed. Finally, I am a colon cancer survivor.
My career has been in higher education, where I worked for over twenty-five years in many capacities, including teaching courses in web-related topics and managing academic departments. I am now writing and traveling full time — what a wonderful thing!
This website will be a forum for many things. I want to talk about life, in all of its rich, wonderful and terrifying forms. I want to share my travels, my thoughts on life, and my experiences as a woman and a mom. I want to talk about the nature of reality and the meaning of life, and to celebrate being alive.
Thanks for coming to visit!
