What do you hope to explore?

I hope to explore how I can use the written word to express myself to others. I'm looking for a genre where I feel comfortable writing. I'm NOT looking to become rich and famous, but will I be able to write something that might interest other people? Time will tell. I have spent several years trying to teach elementary special education students how to write simple sentences. Therefore, I'm out of practice writing with multi-syllable words and using more than one paragraph. I have a lot to learn and I am eager to get started.

Tell us about an experience you've had with the Humanities.

My passion in life is reading and books. I enjoy a variety of genres. I LOVE children's books and have a HUGE collection of them. Growing up I loved poetry and even wrote some poems. I wrote them down in a journal, but that was so many years ago, that I don't know where the journal is now. Time to start a new one.

What's your hidden talent?

Music (And we want to keep that hidden for now). Growing up I took piano lessons and played the trumpet and French Horn in the band. I also sang in the High School musicals as well as several choral groups. I even took voice lessons. Music is another one of my passions, but my voice is VERY out of practice. I now sing in the car with my favorite CD's --and that is where is should remain.

Anything you'd like the group to know before we meet you?

Being retired at 62 years of age has given me time to take a breath and contemplate what I should do for my next career. Obviously, I can and will, substitute for extra income, but that really isn't who I am at this moment in time. I enjoy being creative, and public education just isn't creative anymore. Now I am looking forward to my future travels and experiences. I would like writing to be a part of the journey.

Introduction

I am a recently retired special education teacher. I have been married for thirty years (to the same man). We have two grown children and three grandchildren. I have been too busy to write in the past. Now I have time to get the juices flowing.
