I used to be passionate about politics and the environment, though lately I've kind of thrown up my hands and I am just trying to live a serene life.
I am a widow with two grown children. My daughter is an attorney in Sacramento and my son is teaching English in Japan.
I taught 2nd grade for 21 years in a small valley town near Fresno. I'm so happy to be back on the coast.
I like American Idol, Project Runway and Racheal Maddow.
I have very broad taste in music I mostly listen to 60s folk, but i like just about everything I even listen to rap.
I like Italian food and am a bit of a health nut.
