I am a 52 year old middle age woman (middle because I plan to live to be 100 years old!). I pursue a passionate life and savor every moment I am here. I have been given many gifts of family, love, vocation and talent. I love people, especially the young children with cancer whom I am privledged to care for as a pediatric oncology RN. I balance the difficult work I do with fun things like traveling to far away places, learning new languages ( I speak 4 now), knitting, quilting, reading, and being an outdoor girl: hiking, kayaking and camping. Just sketching and painting my way through the world before me. I hope you enjoy your visit here.
