I am a 50 year old student once again on a journey to the unknown. I hope it takes me to a place where kindness can be shown. I live in...

Well ,Here I am a 50 year old mother of 2 natural-born children and about 150 others. I have a daughter and a son. I am from a traditional Irish Catholic family but now claim only to be a human being with good karma too give. I love to garden and listen to music. I have held many jobs in my life. Banks , Construction,Department stores, Small businesses and 15 years in the hotel/restaurant business.I love to cook and give advice. All my kids friends and some of my friends children,come to me for advice or just to talk.I have been told I am a great listener, but I always give advice that they need to make the right decision about and act on.My hand is always extended out to those who want to help themselves. I can show them the direction but I can’t do it for them.
I have recently gotten into photography and love to manipulate things on the computer within my photo’s. Most are landscape or people,but I hope to get more abstract soon.As we said in the ’70’s PEACE-OUT & LOVE TO ALL
Well since I first made my posts I have had many life changes. Divorced after 24 years and moved to Kauai Hawaii with a wonderful man who I plan to live the rest of my life with. We are both starting over. I attend Oregon state and will soon have my B.S. in sociology. I thought since I have helped so many kids I would get a degree so I could make a real difference on a large scale. Enjoy the pictures from Hawaii it really is the garden of eden

inspiring weekend

I recently attended a seminar put on by PSI. It is a very empowering look at your own life and the direction you want it to go. Having a goal and not losing site of it. One of my goals is to express my self in as many medias as possible,writing, reading and photography. I hope to find other people with the same need to express themselves and share our knowledge to get a better understanding of wh…
