Bio: writer, collage artist, gimp, activist, & Independent Advocate for the Disabled and the Elderly. I’ve been involved in animal rescue for the last 22 years. (I ran Southwest Writers Club for more than a decade, until my neurological dystrophy made it impossible to continue; now I take care of things online, as well as membership, booking meetings, etc.) I have an enormous Rottweiler I adore and a houseful of rescued cats that drive me nuts. I create original board games, work in ceramics, and donate art pieces to auctions for charity. My motto – Savor the Day – reflects my belief that we should live with our whole hearts and love every moment we have. Disclaimers: I'm old, but liberal. I'm honest, but kind. I'm a smart-ass. I have a grown daughter and a GrandCat.
My illness is progressive and incurable, but be forewarned: I am irrepressibly hopeful. Example: I got myself ordained in 2011 in order to perform same-sex weddings – in TEXAS, a red state. I know we’ll get there one day; provided I’m still alive, I’ll be ready to help those couples out. Now, that is hopeful.
