My career has been in the field of training and technical writing and is sadly coming to a halt due to economny and outsourcing. On the plus side I've had plenty of time for photography in the past year. I love the outdoors, all things to do with theatre, music, art and NYC. I paint, or try to; have parrots for pets; attempt to keep up with all of the computer skills/tools, etc. that seem to be required now-a-days. I can relate to the keeping Alzheimer's at bay post:). Widowed, three grown children, seven grandchildren.
