I am a 62 year old divorced female currently living in Minot, North Dakota. I am legally blind, but manage to do some sewing and crocheting and lots of writing. I am the proud mother of a 22 year old son who managed to graduate from high school despite having apraxia (a form of autism).
It took a lot of encouragement from his mother who taught him several ways to study...he is really a brain in science and history...his problem is motor related and effects his ability to write so it can be read...thank goodness for computers to help him with that problem!
I love to travel...because of an immune deficiency I am unable to travel to some places I'd like to see (all of them out of the USA).
I am interested in keeping up funding for social issues, transportation, abuse of children and women, I am an advocate of animal welfare and of taking females and other out of the very lowest poverty levels. I have other interests and am constantly writing to our congressmen about various issues that are of importance to our country and indeed the world.
I collect lighthouses...I have been fascinated by them since I was little...I have lived a great deal of my life around water, perhaps that is why lighthouses are so fascinating...I actually started collecting them when I began to lose my vision.
