I'm a mom, a retired ED nurse, an actor in community theatre, a writer, a singer, and a professional scarf maker, lol. I am interested in spirituality, New Age, Ayurveda, yoga, tai chi, qi gong, exercise, health care (30 years as an RN), anything to do with human interest, and anything that I can do to help others. I am a community activist for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (LI Chapter), PETA, ASPCA, and environmental issues. Although I should eat a whole lot healthier, I do know a lot about herbs, cooking, and healthy eating. I used to run; it's my intention to get back to running 6 miles daily again, although I'm not so sure that my 50 year old body would like to comply. ;) I've been writing for many years, and whenever I need to blow off steam, I do not call "Bennett" from Commando, but I write. I have a teenaged daughter who is almost ready for college, a husband, and two very large, goofy dogs.
