Interaction with guests
During the spring and the summer I am out of town and the rental is a sublet. At other times I share the duplex and interact with the guests who are in my home, as much as the guests want. I am helpful about local restaurants, shops, transportation, cultural, art and outdoor events. I enjoy meeting new people.

I have been retired for 8 years. This allows me to spend time working on my botanical art and taking art classes. When I am not doing that I enjoy the richness of NYC culture: museums, movies, theater,and parks. Part of the year I spend in Vermont where gardening becomes an important part of my life. I am responsible and ethical in my relations with others. I enjoy having visitors spend time in my home.
