These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age (56). I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live in the burbs and work in the city (Chicago, the best city in the world). I'm an aunt, a friend and a colleague. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.
1.What famous or fictional person/character did
you admire as a child? When I was a little girl, I read obsessively about my two favorite Presidents: Abe and JFK.* By the time I graduated from grammar school, I was proud to tell the librarian I had read every book on Lincoln she had on her shelves. Among other benefits, reading about these two men perpetuated my love of reading because they were both book lovers. A lifetime later, I still stop and pay attention to anything about Abe and JFK that comes my way.
2. Plan your last day on Earth. No, thank you. I hope I die suddenly, with no advance warning.
3. If you could wish for only 3 things to
come true, what would you wish for? Religious tolerance, serenity for those closest to me, and a winning lottery ticket.
4.What does love mean to you? Putting the well being of another above your own.
