I’ve added a new page as of April, 2019, called “Light My Fire.” Change happens – especially over fifty! The Light My Fire page will be a place to share stories of realization, transformation, redefinition – some will be mine, but most, I hope, will be yours!! If you’d like to share a post here, contact me. (If that link doesn’t work, just head over to my “Contact” page). Featured image is “The Goddess Pele,” by Arthur Johnsen.

I am an evolving experiment in self-actualization. After a 31+ year corporate career, I ditched my suits and pumps and finally tumbled into my “why” in the fall of 2018. My first (possibly only?!) book, "Zen (and Rage) and the Art of a Never-Ending Home Renovation," was published in December of 2021. It is a humorous and sometimes harrowing account of surviving, and even thriving through, a decade-plus home renovation project being jointly delivered by my husband and me, with an occasional few contractors and (sometimes more than) a little help from our friends. I continue to share the ongoing saga on my Hump-Day House Stuff posts. My passion for the links between food and public and environmental health can be found in my "Food Friday" posts. For fun (and profit), I am a practitioner of value investing and disciplined trading strategies. I've been on the adventure of marriage to my husband Tim since 1993. We have 2 (arguably) grown sons, James and Owen, and the best family (including my mom & dad, whose care I'm helping with, which I also blog about in Mom & Dad Monday) and friends I could ever have imagined for myself.
