I look at what I choose to do now that I am a retired from the workplace. I attend writing workshops and have developed a new network with writing peers and teachers. I travel internationally. I love to read and gather information from many sources. I wrote two books. This is my life, heavily influenced by my superpower of curiosity, and my interest in communicating and sharing life stories with others.
