For Balance... I pray, meditate, do yoga, spend time with my husband Larry in Maine, traveling the world, or at our home in Costa Rica. I steer my life toward what is meaningful and joyful.  I garden, explore nature, play with doggies and children, study, read and paint. 


I hope my life is a contribution to the well-being of the planet.
