Columnist, freelance writer, poet - With more than a half century behind me, I've learned a lot through trial and error. My passions are to make people laugh, putting an end to bullying, debating controversial issues, analyzing and finding solutions to problems, and advocating for equality for all. I am always learning new things! I enjoy writing articles, prose, and poetry. I love tutoring, bowling, baseball, and taking care of children. I love HGTV.
