Blessed . . . grateful . . . that is me. For sure, I've hit my share of jagged
potholes since 1965. Fortunately, most of my life has been clear sailing,
though often realized only in hindsight.
Here's a bit of what I've done, where I've been, and who I am now: earned A.B.
and M.S.W. degrees from the University of Michigan, and a J.D. from UC/Davis
Law School; lived in Nigeria, France, Romania, and South Africa, as well as
Sedona, Arizona, much of the East Coast, and my sister's 100 acre farm north
of San Francisco; traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe; have kids and
grandkids, step-children and step-grandchildren; sorted through several
husbands before I found the keeper (Ken Normington) of 21 years and
counting; volunteered in an orphanage in Romania; worked in Governor Jerry
Brown's office; was Staff Attorney for the Office of the General Counsel/USDA
in San Francisco; had my own law offices and managed others; taught divorce
and elder mediation at Sonoma State University in California; was a
newspaper columnist for the Arizona Daily Sun; joined husband Ken in
timeshare sales and management at beautiful resorts stretching from South
Africa to Hawaii; for four years Captain Ken and I lived aboard two different
sailboats on the East Coast sailing between Castine, Maine, and Key West,
Florida; retired in Nirvana, aka Sequim, Washington on the scenic Olympic
Physically, I am blessed with good health. I am still short, or shorter.
My passions include sharing the good life with husband Ken (we're joined at
the hip), family, and friends; appreciating Mother Nature's fine handiwork;
reading talented authors; and writing - planning to launch a new blog in 2015.
I am a proud feminist eagerly awaiting the first of many women presidents; a
dedicated lifelong Democrat; and a weary, concerned environmentalist.
I can't wait to see you at the reunion and hear all about you! In the meantime I
