Cant live without: If my house was burning down, the five things I would grab would be my husband, my cat, my iPhone, my Nook and my wallet. All my photography and family photos are stored digitally, no need to worry about those.
Favorite travels: Of the five continents I have visited, Africa is my favorite place, although I love wherever I am at the moment. But there is just nothing more thrilling than being on safari. With my camera.
Favorite books: Loved "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed; Nora Ephron's "I Remember Nothing; and Pillars of the Earth," by Ken Follett, to name three.
Activities: I am on Sierra Club's Sierra Florida Communications Team as an editor of the state newsletter, for which I also do the layout; member of the Sarasota Yacht Club and its Book Club and Travelers Club; serve on the Landscape Committee of my Homeowners Association.
