My life is about words. My dad used to say that I had been vaccinated with a phonograph needle. He may have been right, although phonographs are called turntables and are usually vintage. However, I am vintage too! Nowadays my words are both spoken and written.
A liberal arts education was not wasted on me! What I enjoy most is learning something new and finding its connections within my life. The challenge, though, is focusing on what is possible for me to accomplish in the time left to me.
