As a writer, editor and occasional translator, I am passionate about words and ideas. This site was first set-up to showcase my writing to potential employers. If you are here for this purpose, please follow the menu links above. (Samples of my writing in French will follow shortly.)

However, I tend to natter about things that matter-(things like choice and change and twisted corporate values and war and the mess it makes of people’s lives). As a result, I decided to add a blog, which you can read and contribute to here.

I have a zillion questions begging to be answered. If two heads are better than one, hundreds beat two any day, so I intend to listen to your ideas, thoughts and feelings too.

Let’s talk about alternate lifestyles and housing and clean energy production and minimalism. About how to grow gracefully into wise and gracious elders, how to parent adults and how to be a loving long-distance grand-parent. Let’s discuss how to develop a social circle, how to make a difference in the world and how to turn old dreams into realities before moving on to whatever comes after this earthly passage.

Let’s talk and wend our way toward answers or relevant responses. I want to inspire, challenge, and persuade you. I want you to inspire, challenge and persuade me. I want to listen and I want to be heard.

So welcome and feel free to add your two cents’ worth. I would love to hear from you. You might also like to read a few of my favorite bloggers by clicking on the links below.
