Since I first started this blog in 2011, my blood remains thin, our dog Munchkin is of blessed memory, and our son Matt is out in the real world, making a living as a techie in a 3D printing company. Oh, I have been retired for over three years! Now I spend my time in a variety of volunteer activities: from reading to elementary school kids to playing bingo and singing with seniors; from being a docent at the local Anne Frank in the World Exhibit to managing a website and newsletter for a friend’s business; from working with a non-profit (BlueHair Technology, check them out) to help seniors use technology to reduce isolation, to figuring out how to leverage social media for our synagogue; from playing tennis and learning how to play bridge (both with my husband Bill), to weekly lunches with my friends. Oh, and I still take pictures- including our most recent trip to Costa Rica! I consider myself blessed to have this new life after IBM, where I can finally do the things which were on my “when I have more time” list for so long.

I am a transplant from the North, living in the south so many years that my blood has thinned too much- I can never go back. I live with my husband and our half deaf, half blind dog- and occasionally our son Matt- a grad student at MIT starting this fall. I work in the technology industry, but I am on the marketing end more than the technical end. I have been lucky enough to have 30+ years — but 5 careers — with the same company. Some day I will retire and spend more time on some of my favorite pastimes- like photography. But for now, I am relegated to being a weekend warrior.
This year, I am going to try something more manageable- use these themes and try to post at least one picture a week- hopefully more. Wish me luck!
