I am from a line of oldsters, women and men with laughter in their eyes and peace in their
hearts. I am from a line of oldsters, women and men forged in the 20s and 30s into granite like vessels built to withstand time. I am from the world of public education, my mind and heart
strengthened teaching college, high school, and middle school English. I am from a world that loves hiking, kayaking, animals, plays, old movies and music. I am a breast cancer survivor moored to life by friends, family, and the excellence of my doctors and nurses. I am from two
different parts of America, FL and MA. I am from a world of hope in tomorrow.
