After an appropriate number of years, my family nest is empty. I am now fortunate to be able to enjoy the company of my adult daughters as they confidently find their way in the world. Throughout their years at home books were a constant source of entertainment and comfort and opened their eyes to the world. Dan and I shared our wanderlust with them, visiting museums and ballparks, nature preserves and cities large and small. And theater, everywhere.
Now that they are spreading their wings, it’s my turn to do the same! Reading has always been a big part of my life. Those who’ve known me the longest would agree that this figurine captures much of my childhood, right down to the haircut and fashion. A lot has changed. Day in, day out I am in search of new titles to share with book group members and people I meet. I’ve spent more than a decade organizing and facilitating book groups and sharing book topics and connections with a range of audiences. The Books page is where I’ll be sharing some reading resources.
If your book group is looking for a refresh that only a professional facilitator can provide, be in touch. Maybe your group is scheduling a retreat or day of learning and a presentation/discussion on a literary topic would fill out the program. Or the pace of your life has changed and you are looking for a book group to join. Let me help you enrich your reading experience.
My nose is not only in the books! Nothing like the first whiff of spring air to get me out and exploring. Following a path well-worn or just looking up to see the local architecture, there’s always something to see.
On the Wanderings page I’ll be putting excursions and tips for exploring near and far.
In whatever I do, it’s all about connecting with people and the community I live in. Whether I’m talking books, volunteering in the community or searching out a new trail to follow, finding people who share my passions enriches my life.
Please join me as I find my wings!
