These essays are difficult. I am a compelation of history and experiences. My relationship with God is growing and that is primary in my life. Right now I am in Cincinnati, Ohio helping to take care of my brother who has cancer. I will be movingback to AZ in a few months which makes my heart sing. I grew up in Ohio but the mountains, red rocks, desert in bloom and the eclectic mix of people is something I long for. I was an army brat of a physician and being a rebel, I went towards alternative healing methods. I have a cat named Tucson and I love dogs as well. I have two children (grown+ married) and they are awesome young women. I had my first grandson (Gabriel) Aug 30/07. All I can say is I am hooked!!! I love to cook, read (bookaholic) and sitting by a fireplace is my favorite! I am a little shy until I get to know you and then I am an open book. I will probably be buried in my jeans and Birkenstocks but I love to dress up and go out. I expect honesty and openess from those around me. I love to laugh and dance. I consider each day something that God has given me to celebrate and make the most of!!
