Making money working as an academic librarian
Making myself happy with my art car, Bette, with my cats (I'm up to
three now) and my big dog (a 6 year old Great Dane), poking around
in my garden, writing
, making art
, hanging out with friends.
Last year, I did a lot of traveling for fun (which is a little
unusual for me). I was in Boone and Louisville for a few weeks last
summer; in Dismals Canyon outside Birmingham in September; in
Antigua and Panajachel, Guatemala in both March and October, and in
Cologne, Germany for the winter holidays.
This year, I'll be closer to home, but went back to my "heart's
home" in Louisville for a wedding in June, and am heading to Vegas
for a Rare Books Conference. I'm already planning to spend Holy
Week 2015 in Guatemala with friends (though we may go to Curacao
instead!), and will see what other travels that year brings. I'd
like to go to Istanbul for my 50th birthday, and to Central Africa,
to see the mountain gorillas ... someday.
I've also decided I'm going to learn the tango. Argentinian Tango.
