Just an ordinary woman enjoying life in 'phased retirement' and working part time at a great job. I love to cook, am an avid reader; love quilting, sewing, beading on fabric; altering antique books; making fabric postcards; and living by the sea. I have a long list of want-to-do's -- things I want to learn and see and experience. In 2006, I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and that has been a catalyst for learning valuable life lessons. For a long while it seemed that I had become a 'patient'; it took a lot of work to get back to being me: just an ordinary woman.
I live on the Maine coast where I am blessed with the gift of time to do work that nourishes my soul.
These days, I'm practicing slow. . .reading, thinking, looking. . . giving myself the gift of timelessness to listen, learn, watch and just breath.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. Notes & comments are welcomed and always appreciated.
