I enjoy kayaking, music, learning, teaching and people. I love winter in Canada when we have snow and I love it when winter leaves us and green tress bud and birds sing.I am a devoted Nana to a 5-year old grandson who I would rather hang out with and play than to do anything else. He keeps my child alive and well in me and he keeps me laughing and inspired to do what I can to bring kindness and compassion to the world he will inhabit when I am gone.
