Dreams are like the paints of a great artist. Your dreams are your paints, the world is your canvas, believing is the brush that converts your dreams into a masterpiece of reality.

I feel like I’ve left a masterpiece or two in many places as I’ve live my dreams working in a career that I never really considered a “job” because I loved it so much. I loved the people and the process and I think working in non-profit organizations is part of what I was born to do. I have had many wonderful successes, but the times when I was the most successful were when I was asked to build, create, or turn-around a situation within an organization or community. I am considered a visionary with over 35 years experience in a variety of senior management positions including executive director and CEO in several non-profit organizations. I have a history of leading organizations through start-ups, turnarounds and mergers. Now retired, I love spending time with my grandchildren, reading, writing and traveling. I do a limited amount of consulting.

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life, which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

I am now off on another great adventure--painting another masterpiece--Nonna’s House Productions. Determination, creativity, imagination, ideas are the things we must process to step confidently toward our dreams. I believe that everyone has the potential to be their own hero or heroine and everyone should have the opportunity to play the lead in his or her own story. Nonna’s House is there to inspire and motivate individuals and groups to find their voice. Check us out at www.nonnahouseproductions.com and Nonna Me& Me at www.NonnaMeMe.com and at nonnasbrushstrokes.wordpress.com

I am a passionate student, learning as well as leading. I am passionate about many things--family, books, causes, and writing are just a few. My Facebook profile picture will attest to the fact that I also love motorcycles.

I am a maverick because I believe in changing the paradigms when they no longer work.

I am a warrior because I believe in fighting for people and causes that feel they have no voice.

I am a writer because I love the art of storytelling. Whether you are writing a letter, grant, business plan or goals, you are telling a story. Whether writing fiction or technical “how-to” directions you are constructing a story.

I read that you cannot start a fire with paper alone, but writing something down on paper can start a fire inside of you. I have always had a fire in my belly and I now have a full-blown blaze. Hubpages allows me to feed the flames. I invite you to join me in feeding your flames by joining me and thousands of other writers right here so check it out by signing up for hubpages here

Don't just take my word for it. Try it for yourself and you will love it.

        Has anyone ever used the Neo by Alphasmart?  Reported use is over 700 hours on 3AA batteries.  If you use or have used it...do you like it?  Why or why not!  Thanks!

        OK, I am new to hubpages and I am so appreciative that I found it.  Of course I want to make money--to be a "paid" writer--oh yeah.  But while I am trying to figure it all out, does anyone know of a...
