Spontaneous Responses
I have reached a stage in my life where I don't have the luxury of "later."  The older I get, the more urgent my life becomes.  Not urgent in the sense that I am rushing around out of control.  But urgent in the sense that I can see the need for action in response to the world surrounding me.  I feel the necessity to speak my mind, and take action where I can make a difference.  This blog is a real-time account of my spontaneous responses to life in the 21st century.

I also describe myself as a “Baby Boomer Diva on the Move” who has a passion for God and family.
