Bloggers Photo I was born and raised in northern California in the land of the glorious redwoods. My father worked in the lumber industry and my brother and I had a simple but wonderful childhood. Off to the big city to become a nurse and all these years later I still am. I was married for many years, have 2 grown boys and 2 young grandsons..Jordan and Elliot. Me proud? You truly is the best thing about growing older. On my own now and enjoying all that I can cram into my life. I love music.. am a life long member of The Friends of Jose Carreras..poetry and music are my loves.I am a bear with me while I figure this all out.

    Thanks, Barb,for the placement. It gave me a chance to describe that dance as well as I could recall the moves of it. Even not among the winners list, there were so many great poems I saw inspired by your contest and I enjoyed cruising your winners' list last night. Have a great Sunday, Barbara!
