so much stuff has happened since I last updated my profile. Literally,
nearly four years have vanished into thin air!!!
Yes, that's me, offering you a nice
slice of the Bavarian Cream Torte I prepared using my mom's favorite
In 2008 I entered into a new phase of
career development to serve as the Communications Director of 'sister
companies' one of which manufactured industrial doors and the other
stainless steel parts.
Double-wow... what a hoot that was!!! I
loved it, and I hated it. Thus I left the world of corporate glamour in
August of 2009 and fiddled around for a while, figuring out what I
wanted to do.
In 2010, some friends and I gave our best
shot at forwarding a legislative initiative to
prohibition of cannabis for medicinal use in Arkansas. Also, my
youngest and I took a roadtrip to California and along the way I became
infatuated with New Mexico. Thus I began spinning plans to relocate.
So great was my desire that I was barely a
heartbeat away from closing a deal on a sweet-little motel and
restaurant when, just before Christmas that year something totally
bizarre pounced out of the blue and indentured me to a civic activism
cause which I now serve as the volunteer Communications Director of
Time After Time.
My good works have been aided and abetted
by the fact that my Social Security pension kicked-in early in 2011 and
I am now (so they tell me) officially 'living the life of Riley' (for
any of you old enough to remember that refrain).
