About

Since retirement I’ve become active in a variety of areas and made a lot of new friends. As a volunteer at an Aids organization I have researched numerous issues. I edit one of the periodic publications, as well as contributing poetry and articles to the newsletter.

During my first year of retirement, I enrolled in courses in the addiction counselor program at the community college in order to gain a better understanding of addiction and the issues facing Injection drug users. The Aids organization includes a needle exchange program

A friend talked me into joining The Society for Learning in Retirement, and I’m glad she did. In the peer learning environment each participant must present a seminar on an aspect of each course they register in, so we learn from each other. This group includes some of the most interesting people I have ever met.

In my second year of retirement, I also enrolled in a fiction writing course at the university. Writing has become almost an addiction fueled by the amazing people I met during my time on My Space. Originally, I joined My Space for photography which I still enjoy, though somehow blogging grabbed my interest

Blogging opened another new world to me. It became a vehicle for meeting new and interesting people who I would never have met otherwise. Their support, encouragement and knowledge drew me further into exploring many writing avenues. And so, here I am

    Sassy Sue! You've been raiding my library! Hahah cool... thanks for dropping the comments... my mind has been vexed with political issues of late and it shows in my muse.... I'd rather be exploring wonders, I really don't know why my passions make me stumble grim sometimes. :-) But hey it's fun... that's it! Hi and thanks again.
