I’m a 70-something wife, mother, grandmother, retired CPA, resident of Tacoma (formerly Dallas). I’m a life-long Presbyterian, and interested in the greater national and international church. I love to read and knit in my spare time (when I’m not tweeting, or blogging.) I’m passionate about social justice (anti-racism, environmental activism, hunger initiatives, income disparity, feminism, ablism, etc.).

Favorite Quotes/Poems/Sayings

Once upon a time…there was a simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated.


Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the time I am being carried on great winds across the sky.


My heart shall sing of the day you bring, let the fires of your justice burn

Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near, and the world is about to turn.

  1. Do you know of the Tacoma Banjo Band, and if so do you know where they practice now? My grandson enjoys them! When I googled Tacoma Banjo Band, your info came up! Thanks šŸ™‚


  2. Thank you. I appreciate you saying what you said. Right now, I’m avoiding the whole thing — got an article that has to get done…. Someone told me retirement meant you didn’t have to work anymore…. They lied!
