About Me


To meet new people and lend a helping hand wherever I can


Being the mother of 8, I have enjoyed many adventures of diverse delights, now with 29 grandchildren and 11 great grandchilden, this is amplified immensely. I told my children that when they all became independent, it was my turn to be a teenager, so I am now learning how to do that. I have been travelling a lot more and am enjoying experiencing new people, new cultures, new places. Life is good.


Honesty and integrity are key factors to building a life worth living. I do not become involved in partisan politics, but look for us all to come to the realization that consultation and unity of purpose applied with genuine love and purity of intention is what we need to effectively meet the challenges we now face.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


About 5'6, 140 pounds, still have my red hair, not too bad on the eyes, I am a sweet and spicy gal, ready to enjoy the delights of life on my own terms. I love most music (prefer no extreme rap),love, art galleries, museums,the symphony, ballet, theater,movies of value or funny, like walks in the woods or on the beach, love life in general, enjoy discovering new places, people, ideas. I am a sincere follower of the Baha'i Faith, so I am an open-minded, non-judgemental, piece of the human family with a love of all humanity and a dedication to establishing true equality of gender, race, social status,and world peace.


I am looking forward to some.


World peace, universal unity, a spiritually based resolution to the world's economic and development inequities, education for all of the world's children, music, art, nature and the preservation of our beautiful natural world, art, music, poetry, writing, all expressions of the best of humanity.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 1976, I drove up the Alcan Highway from Seattle, Washington, to Anchorage, Alaska. It was the most beautiful and amazing trip. The world is beautiful and you see u one view and believe nothing could be more lovely, then around the bend and over the next hill, guess what! It IS more beautiful...all the way to Anchorage. Wonderful trip.
