Quote from Marcel Proust "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."

    

 My published writing includes:  An article regarding a photography exhibit in Boston published in Boston Irish Echo; tour articles in American Women’s Club of Dublin Newsletter; a couple items in Southern Sailing Club Newsletter; poems and first book published in 2003.

Speaking engagements include:  Alpharetta Writers Group, Atlanta Writers Club, Barnes and Noble book signing, Tiffany & Co. Reception and Book Signing, Southern LINC book signing, local 4th grade class talk and a workshop.

I spoke to the Irish Countrywomen’s Association about America; to the Dublin Camera Club, the subject was Photography as Art; as tour director for the American Women’s Club of Dublin; and orientation tours for the US Embassy staff and families in Dublin.

 

Acting includes stage plays every year from first grade all through school, music concerts in high school with the occasional solos.   I did plays with my young adult group at church and a community theatre group.  I was an extra in the made for TV movie “Stay the Night” as front row juror; and a silent actor in a TV commercial.  I played the Granny in Stephen Sondheim’s play “Into The Woods” put on by my church.  These were long ago and faraway :-)

 

Photography opportunities included exhibits of my work, a one woman show with 50 pieces at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin, Ireland; and an exhibit in a gallery in Boston, Massachusetts.  Commercial work included being the photographer for UNICEF Ireland during a two day visit by then UNICEF Ambassador Audrey Hepburn which included a Gala Ball and Auction; a Delta Air Lines special event; project for Pete St. John (singer/songwriter) and photos for a real estate broker in Ireland.  In Atlanta I did PR photos for Sally Stryker for a “Dark Night Theater” production.

 

There have been many tragedies in my life, yet also amazing blessings.  I have learned much and grown through it all.

 

A special joy in my life has been my first book getting published July 2003. It was started while I lived in Ireland and finished in 1999. Autumn of 2002 while doing some research I found a publisher.  I have learned to let God guide my life in these last few years.  Awesome things have happened since it was published.

 

Life is more beautiful and blessed when we let God take control and guide us. I am excitedly waiting for the next surprise He has planned for my life.

Quote from Marcel Proust "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." 

I have seen with new eyes through my heart and soul, and now know the path God is leading me on and trusting in His blessings along the way.  I am so grateful for the gift of finally knowing the purpose for my life.

 

 

I was born, raised and lived in Michigan until 1968 when I moved to Miami, FL where I lived for several years, then relocated to Ireland for over 12 years, many years in Metro Atlanta GA since 1990, with the exception of a few months in Napa CA and now in Greenville SC.  I have traveled throughout Ireland, England and Europe, and parts of the U.S.

Additional information

My first book, "Little One~End of Journey Alone" was published July 2003. Book 2 "Little One~A New Beginning" is in draft mode. I occasionally think about writing my memoirs with the experiences in my life, good and bad, how I have grown through it all. And the best parts would be the amazing surprise blessings God gifted me with along the way. My purpose would be to give encouragement and inspiration to others. I encourage others to find their special gift, and to live their dreams.
