The beauty that surrounds us exfoliates with living energy that transcends my understanding. The reality of this creation inspires me to seek more fully each minute of life that I live. It motivates me to share joy with people. And initiates purpose to influence people’s environmental ethic. I thoroughly enjoy exchanging life perspectives, learning from other people, and collaborating ideas for a larger whole. A few favorites are chocolate-covered strawberries, hiking sunny days in the mountains with my husband, swing and salsa dancing, making music, running, traveling as a working artist, speaking French and living in France.
