I live on the coast of Maine, twenty minutes from Portsmouth New Hampshire. I'm retired from early childhood classroom teaching, currently teaching music to pre school kids and their parents part time. I have two grandchildren in San Rafael, California, the loves of my life. I love to sing, work in my garden (I have raspberries each year and this year beets, five bean plants (I left three for the groundhog), kale, arugula and scads of nasturtiums. I love to cook, read, love road trips, learn to swing dance? My family and friends always come first. I'm in a poetry writing group...novice but loving it!
