I am a mentor, advocate, teacher, and an author. Though I'm retired, my life is full beyond my wildest expectations. I enjoy meeting friends for coffee, gardening, writing, exploring Nature, quilting. I belong to a variety of small communities, each of which enriches my life and provides an opportunity for me to enjoy the diversity of multiple relationships. I am a 78 year-old life-long-learner on a journey that has more miles behind than before me.With that in mind I am especially interested in learning more about living life in the context of death~~one of the focuses of my next book.
