I am first divorced and then a widow having married a wonderful man
at the age of 60. I am retired from two careers, welfare worker
supervisor and attorney. I am currently trying to find my new place
in life by exploring different volunteer options and just having
fun, traveling, and spending time with my four grandsons and my
four kids. I love travel, literature, and music. I am pretty
religious, having been Catholic, then Episcopalean, and now
Lutheran, but I am open minded. My friend says I am the most
tolerant person she knows.
What I’m doing with my life

I spend a lot of time thinking about
God. The state of the world. What I am going to do or plan next.
What the afterlife, if there indeed is one, will be like. New
projects for the house. Packing for the next trip.
