Mark and I live in Tucson (it's hot now) and we met over 30 years ago when we were both ceramic artists. I have a journalism degree from the UofA here and have retired as a television producer who worked for the city of Tucson. Mark loves photography and is a radiographer parttime. He graduated from New York City College in NYC. We have a dog Pearl, a cat Nacha, and a desert tortoise as pets. We don't live far from the University, and enjoy riding our bikes. I now teach Japanese flower arranging, and plan to travel to Japan next year to test at the Professor level.
