At this point in my life : I have the time and resources to engaged in activities I read about. I am
learning how to Scuba Dive. I was born in New York, to a single, mother who was barley able to provide. At times, I lived with relatives. And, regular school attendance was challenging. Often, I worked, babysitting. I did not have proper clothing and frequently, I required medical attention, I was an asthmatic. However, in school, I developed a love for words, books became my companion. To "stay out of trouble" I spent time in the library. I read about different lifestyles, places, I wanted to visit and activities I wanted to engage in. I successfully completed high school and college, obtained rewarding positions, saved and now, retired, travel and participate in activities I read about. I am content.
