I recently retired after having worked in non-profits serving seniors for 32 years. This was much more than a job to me - it was my life's work. The rest of my life has just begun! However, as my daughter will be attending NYU in the Fall most of my travels will be centered along the East Coast.
I volunteer for my Temple, Music Academy of the West, Santa Barbara Natural History and Art Museums, Santa Barbara Symphony and State Street Ballet. I am an appointed Commissioner for my city to serve as a Parks and Recreation Commissioner. I really enjoy this. I am a very active life long learner.
I Jazzercise religiously and long walks on the beach and in the mountains are a regular part of my life. I enjoy the journey. I believe the rest of my life has just begun. I have absolutely no intentions of watching life go by sitting on the side lines. I live each day of my life grateful for all the many blessings I have.
In April 2012, I was a March of the Living Tour LA Adult Delegate. This meant so much to me. I spent a week in Poland studying the Shoah and then a week in Israel. This was the first thing on my bucket list. Next is the purchase of a vintage camper. This I will make happen. My dream that won't - is a real log cabin in Lake Tahoe.
I have lived in Santa Barbara 32 years and was born and raised in Houston. My life is 2 open books. I am 62 and I am not ashamed of it! So my age, height and weight are really me. Lastly, it is important to me to buy locally, think globally and buy "Made in America" whenever possible. My life is filled with the traditions, values and customs of my faith that define who I am. It is the utmost importance to me to live a honorable life.
