I grew up in Pennsylvania, playing with kittens in the hay mow and shelling peas from the garden. After college in Virginia, I taught high school English in eastern Pennsylvania, and went on to teach theater at a college in Kansas. I loved to travel and enjoyed seeing and photographing as many places as possible.
Unfortunately, I became disabled from a toxic exposure in 2002, and had to give up that life.
I came back to Pennsylvania and my only travels now are in my immediate area. Luckily for me, my immediate area is gorgeous! I'm in an active agricultural region next to lovely mountains.
My disability could keep me homebound, but by wearing a Powered Air Purifying Respirator, I can go out and indulge in my love of photography. The PAPR cleans the air of the many particles and chemicals to which I am reactive.
My life is quite different from what it was, but it is still beautiful!
