Thanks for joining me on my blog; here you will find good photographs and information about techniques, thoughts on creativity and how to become creative, musings about moving into later life. Who am I? What do you put first? Wife, mother, teacher, New Yorker by birth and family history, Minnesota-raised now long-time Californian, photographer, digital artist, a woman no longer young still discovering the woman she is to be . . . all of these things and more. I am just now retired after having been an educator for 30 years, and in the process reinventing myself, discovering what I want to do and whom I want to be for the next part of my life. I hope my blog will be of interest and will show the ways that life can still blossom, even as the years go by.
