Divorced; 3 adult children all on their own; environmental sustainability; social justice; living wage; organic and fair trade; community supported agriculture; alternative energy - these are some of my "passions". I've been an activist since my senior year of high school and truly believe Margaret Meade's quote: "Never doubt that a small thoughtful group of committed people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has." War is not the answer-it's a reaction, and if this world population is to endure, we need to find better ways to communicate. I work for peace because I want my children and future grandchildren and great grandchildren to have a better world!
Sci-Fi: Star Wars; X Men; Fantastic Four; (any Marvel DC comics); documentaries; history; dramas, romantic comedies to name a few....
WI Public TV: The 30 Minute Music Hour; Director's Cut; Dr. Who; Bill Moyers
I love most types of music - not country too much - but can appreciate lyrics, instrumentation, and creativity in all its forms. Music is the universal language. It transcends boundaries, language barriers, and lifts my spirit like nothing else.
Dr. Seuss - The Lorax; Left Behind: The Story of the Rawandan Holocaust; Five People You Meet in Heaven - I love to read anything and everything from non-fiction, biographies/autobiographies to inspirational to romance - bring it on!!
My three children: Kelly, Hannah, and Kevin who are my motivation to continue activist work.
