I am passionate about a lot of things. You might say I am scattered, actually–undiagnosed ADD? I have traveled some, raised children, have watched children, am loving the role of grandmom. I guess I truly value a child-like outlook on life. I aspire to one, with its trust, its energy, its awe, its ready creativity, its friendliness, its sincerity, its hope. Things that occupy me ? Art, writing, family, my old house, politics, centering myself in prayer and strolls along the Potomac River. If you have stumbled upon this site, welcome, and I hope you enjoy reading my scattered thoughts!
