Welcome to my Blog. In this, my first post, you'll find an overview of the events and lives I've lived to get me to this point. You'll also find a list of what's most important to me, in this, my fourth life.
Life 1 - I "belonged to someone else". I was born to my parents, Ruth and Steve, and was their child. Then moved on to be my now ex-husband's wife and my childrens' mother. During this life, that is mostly how I saw myself, belonging to others and doing their bidding.
Life 2 - I became a single parent and started to take some control over my life. I went to work full-time, sold Avon products for extra income, went to school at night working on a degree. This life basically "ended" when my younger daughter graduated from high school and went off to college.
Life 3 - I don't have a name for this life, but it was the time period when I was not responsible to or for anyone but myself, but still working at a full-time job and going through life with little purpose.
Life 4 - I entered this life less than a year ago. I still am only responsible for myself, as far as people go. I am no longer working full-time at a "job", but have actually started two businesses. One of these is currently paying most of the bills while the other is more of my dream job in which I use my photography and other art/craft skills. This life is good, so far. I hope I will be here for a long time to come.
Here is the promised list of what is important to me:
My Daughters and Son-in-law
Other family and friends
Environmental issues such as global warming, high gasoline prices, use of natural resources to extinction, rain forest protection, endangered species, etc.
Arts and Crafts - photography, museums, knitting, quilting, music, beading, etc.
The Alzheimer's Assocation, AIDS Action Committee, Rosie's Place, The Boston Food Bank, Pine Street Inn, and various other causes I hope to address in the weeks to come.
Thanks for stopping by my blog; hope you'll come back again very soon.
Peace and Prosperity,
