Caring for little people, mature people, plants, and my pet cats is a big part of my life. Here is a big fireworks display of love going out to my two incredible sons: they are the best thing that ever happened in my life!

Also, I love creating, learning, and making music.

Learning led me to teaching. I have taught from pre-school through college in urban, suburban, and rural settings. Although I consider myself to be an unmasterful jack-of-all-trades, I do particularly well with gifted education, math, and music.

I play a variety of musical instruments and sing. Again, it is the jack-of-all trades situation: I am so-so at all of them. But, for those who are interested, here is the list: piano, guitar, recorder, mallets, djembe, percussion auxilliary and most recently clarinet. For voice, I have a wide range, but my best notes are in the mezzo range (the soul of the chorus).

From my gardening hubs, it must also be very obvious that I "paint with plants." In other words, I play a lot in the garden. I happily share the good parts, funny parts, and challenging parts of this passion with my readers.

Plus, I am a late starter at cat loving and cat caregiving. As if cats need care, right? They don't think so, but they do enjoy being fed by us humans. I am besotted with my furry family members and I am sharing it shamelessly in my hubs. You can read about my personal experiences with their love at my other HUB site

You may want to start at the Cat Adoption hubs I have written.

Earlier, I described myself as being a jack-of-all trades. Nonetheless, there is one activity at which I am undisputedly an expert: burning food onto the bottoms of pots! I can walk away from the kitchen to do "just a few things" while food is simmering, browning, and cooking, and I have a high success rate of not returning in time to stir the pot. It's an inborn talent.

I am in wonderful Pennsylvania, but I love getting to warm and sunnier places on vacations. Maybe the next time I am visiting my brother in the Bay area, I'll drop in on the Hubpages headquarters!
