I got memed(memmed?) by Tricia Jumonville who raised Morgans ..and here are 5 things that you didn't know about me, probably...
1.. My family is originally from the Carolinas, but I grew up in Detroit where I helped my buddies build engines for drag racing and then cruised Woodward Avenue to test the engines in the days when car hops delivered your Cherry Coke and French Fries to your car on roller skates.
2..My partner and I won a dance contest when I was fifteen. I got my master's degree while teaching full-time and going to night school when I was twenty-something.
3.. By the time I was thirty-or-so, I owned an executive search firm (15+ years), and zoomed between Ann Arbor, Chicago, Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale in a Silver Anniversary Corvette .I like speed. When I lived in the harbor on a 40 foot cruising speed boat just south of Victoria, B.C, that boat, one of two designed by Edmund Monk with planing hulls, could go faster than a Donzi.
4..The Muse caught me when I was forty-something .I started to paint. Very large canvases. Broad strokes. Bright colors. Even though I can't draw worth a lick, I actually got picked up by quite a few galleries along the Pacific Coast. I also wrote a book that to my surprise was the 1st Runner-up for the Best Alternative Health Book of 1999.
5..My amazing son is a Magnum-Juried professional B&W photographer, who had a show in Seattle last year.. I've always lived by water until now, so I just look at the mountains as waves in slow motion as the sun plays across them.... (see what I mean in this photo?) I love dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, gardenias and this view from my deck in Asheville.
