So Much to Explore......
Lately I've been exploring my creative side with more photography, digital scrapbooking and collage as well as "hands on" collage. Meanwhile I still love books and movies. Here's the problem: sometimes we have to sleep. A bummer, isn't it!

About Me I love to read,write and take photos, hang out with family and friends, go to the movies, eat at ethnic restaurants, cook (when I have the time!) I'm a big believer in individual responsibility (you make your own decisions) and communal responsibility (what you do affects others). Sometimes those values are in conflict. I can be stubborn and sometimes noisy. (I come from a loud Italian family - what can I say!) Independence is really important to me. I'm worried about the environment and the economy long term since major corporations seem to be running roughshod over everyone. I do believe that we have the power to make changes. Look how important just a few votes were in 2000! I'm pretty much a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat although I have been known to vote for an occasional Republican and a number of Independents. I am married and have a son who is all grown up and graduated from college. (Much too quickly!) He bought his first house in Philadelphia in the neighborhood where my parents came from. Life really is a circle! We have two cats: Kinsey (named after the detective in the Sue Grafton Novels) and Spenser (named after Robert Parker's detective and the poet!). They chase each other around the house and fight like crazy.They are made for each other!
