About me

Gender Female
Occupation Retired
Location United States
Introduction When I'm able to, I enjoy walking & hiking the Catskills. I've worked in a variety of jobs: as an asst. V.P. of a fine art insurance company in L.A., a park ranger in a NY state park, National Park Ranger in the Hudson Valley and finally as a radiologic technologist in NYC. Though I'm officially retired, it was not voluntary; I have Multiple Sclerosis and several other physical conditions which benched me occupationally. But that's not the end of my story; I guess that's why I started this blog. I know I'm not the only one out there dealing with this sort of stuff; so if I welcome comments. Depending upon how I feel physically, I may or may not write every day, but I'll try--if these ten fingers will cooperate with me! Thanks for stopping by...
