I am a widow living in beautiful northeast Ohio, minutes from the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I have three grown children and four grandchildren, so far. Life is good and beautiful and I am trying with baby steps to learn how to live now that I have lost my best friend and beloved husband of thirty-five years.........I love gardening and textile arts and have a degree in printmaking about which I know too little. I struggle to be organized! Spend too much time at the computer! Fear being unsuccessful at my new life. consider myself both Buddhist and Christian. My favorite author is D.E. Stevenson, but I love many others as well and would love to write more myself. I hope I live another thirty years at least, but know that what life hands us can be a surprise. I believe in the power of prayer and love.
