About Me
I've graduated into my seventh decade of life, which has been most amazing (in a word). I'm married for 2nd time to a lovely, loving man who lets me be ME. We have a 16 yr.old son, which adds more zest and a few more life courses to the mix. I left very few stones unturned in my youth, which I believe I'm still in. (in the 60's again, as it were but knowing what I know now.) I will add that violent felonious activities were one of the stones unturned. Our son is what is referred to as a "triple threat" and aspires to a career in musical theater. That takes work, putting it mildly, but the lad is passionate about it and we back him. As a result we have been treated to art that brings tears. I love words, their origins, uses, histories, not to mention proper uses. Yes, I have been called a pain by husband and son at times. That's all folks. Ask a person about themselves and you're sure to get lots of words, righto? (I don't care whether that's a real word, it just felt fun to use.

Favorite Word:

crepuscular
I love its meaning and the activity in nature that happens during crepuscular times. It has been a matter of life or limb saving to know such things. I also just love the way the word sounds - love it.
