About meI have always loved reading. There is a photo of me at about 6 or 7 with a book in my lap, it's as if the rest of the world does not exist, I am alive in the pages of that book.

My life has been full of challenges, many on the personal level. I strive to better understand myself and learn to forgive and let go, and be thankful for the many good things there are to share with my wonderful friends.

In the first part of my life I loved writing and studying science, biology and then physics. I worked in veterinary, medical and biotech laboratories.

Now I am focusing on a new direction, art. I am exploring different mediums and challenging myself by attending academic classes with a population that is 30 or more years younger than me, quite an experiment. I wonder what might be next on my "to do" list, eh?!

About my libraryAnything that piques my curiosity---I am drawn to science and art, mysticism, biographies of artists and others who have traveled a rocky road to accomplish their goals,I enjoy non-fiction and "beach book" mysteries, the ridiculous and the serious, all in a great stew together; I like new ideas and want to sample all the flavors of the galaxy before dinner is over!
