About meA life in many directions. Deep love of books and ideas. Deep deeep love of nature and animals. I am recovering from 5 years of caring for an Alz mother, who is currently in a nursing home. But some special things came of those years: I developed a goofy sense of humor, and marveled at how our cats created their own schedule for spending quality time with Mom. She was never alone. And I published my book during this time.

Finally, I'm able to read again. Hopefully writing will come next. I loved writing my doctorate, and then a book. Being here is good; and part of the simple joy of being around others who love books. Here, no one will ever say "how come you have so many books?!"


I'm just warming up my fingers for adding the rest of the library. Barrie

About my libraryJust starting to place it on line. This is fun. But now there are books all over the floor!

I had to give up many books in recent years, but the remaining ones are at the core of my psyche. They revolve around ethics and values, fantasy, classics, animals, and the work ethic.

Reach for the Light - Steve Winwood

Deep in the night
the winds blow cold
and in a heartbeat
the fear takes hold...
Deep in the storm
there's a place that's soft and still
where the road waits to be taken
if you only will

The voices inside you
can lead your soul astray
Believe in what you dream
Don't turn away
don't you turn away

Reach for the light
You might touch the sky
Stand on the mountaintop
and see yourself flying
Reach for the light
to capture a star
Come out of the darkness
and find out who you are

Somewhere in time
the truth shines through
and the spirit knows
what it has to do

Somewhere in you
there's a power with no name
It can rise to meet the moment
and burn like a flame

And you can be stronger
than anything you know
Hold on to what you see
Don't let it go
don't you let it go

Now, there's no turning back
when your destiny is calling
Listen to the thunder roll
and let your heart break free

Reach for the light
