I was born and raised in northeast Connecticut. The cold weather got to me, I moved out to Pasadena after college and it was the best decision I ever made. I love this city! I have recently retired as a consultant and trainer in the area of child welfare. I still teach a few classes a month at a local college. I love to travel and meet new people. I love film, theatre, poetry, two favorite poets are Marie Howe and Mary Oliver. I love Prairie Home Companion. And anyone with a sense of humor. I enjoy creative writing and have been thrilled to take some classes at the University of Iowa during recent summers. I have a daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren who are terrific people. Live is good! I enjoy providing my guests with a visit that is tailored to their needs. I respect their privacy while being available for spending time with them at their convenience over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. I have met the loveliest people through Airbnb, what a great idea!
