My life revolves around my family, most especially my youngest daughter who is the light and love of my life. She is bright as a penny. I support President Obama (hurray for a second term!), and describe my social & political philosophy as liberal. I love to garden, which often turns out to be more like landscaping when I get started, as it involves more than just planting flowers. I love to read & I don't mean magazines. I am a bibliophile with a collection of hardcovers so vast that they don't fit on my current bookshelves and I've had to stack books in the closet because there is no room for them anywhere else at the moment. I love Shakespeare and Stephen King equally so eclectic would be a good way to describe what kind of literature I have a passion for when it comes to books and reading. Love art, love going to our museums here, the Getty, Huntington, etc. Adore animals and admire activists trying to save threatened and endangered species and am an ardent supporter of Sea Shepherds & their anti-whaling & other missions to save sea life from being exploited & slaughtered by humans. Love, love, LOVE the Yankees. And finally, my adoration for and devotion to Mr. Springsteen and his music evoke such strong emotions that I do not possess the ability to put those feelings into words. In my eyes, he is perfect, imperfect, gifted, inspirational, timeless and beyond brilliant. Donâ€™t ever say anything negative about him to my face or things could get physical.
