About Me

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” ~Rumi


I’m at a point in my life where I am learning to travel much lighter. I no longer need to fulfill many of the roles that occupied most of my time and dictated my path. This freedom has created an opportunity for me focus on the yearning and passion within my heart and to let it guide my steps. Here is the quickest way I can think of to give you an idea of who I am:

  • A Mother
  • A Nana
  • A Wife (to the same kind man for 32 years)
  • A Sister
  • A Friend
  • Retired
  • A senior citizen by some standards
  • A vegetarian who doesn’t like to cook
  • Creative
  • Resourceful
  • Spiritual, but not religious
  • A good problem solver
  • A photographer with a very basic camera
  • A composter and recycler
  • Funny
  • An introvert
  • Kind
  • Generous
  • Organized
  • Introspective
  • And very recently….. a blogger

In addition, I’ve lived in New York, California, Tennessee, Washington State, Kansas, Florida, and now South Carolina. I grew up in LA, and graduated from San Diego State University in 19?? with a degree in Deaf Education. I worked for more than 22 years as a teacher of children who are deaf or have other special needs. I have worked on research grants, written curriculum materials, and tutored.

For now, I am my own boss and am focusing on following my heart. I have recently started my own photography business (www.stilluniquephotography.com), opened an Etsy shop (http://etsy.me/176kRUp), and now started writing this blog. Now, I think you’ve gotten a pretty good picture of who I am, except for these last few things:

  • I went to elementary school with Kurt Russell’s sister (and even went to a sleep over at their house)
  • When I was in high school, I lived in a house once owned by Ann Margaret which was up the street from the house where the Jackson Five lived
  • I was in People Magazine
  • I went to New Zealand for seven weeks
  • I’m a good Wordfeud (Words with Friends) player
  • I don’t watch any violent or negative TV shows or movies
  • I love deer (the cute animal, not the meat)
  • I meditate
  • I once owned a Karmann Ghia (and would love to own another one)
