Retired. Living my dream.
As detailed in my first blog, 12th Stone (my logo) represents my monthly countdown to my 65th birthday in February 2012. Writing about issues that concern people 65 and older provides the opportunity to write about just about everything. Most of us are vibrant, fun, smart and very much alive. Few issues don’t concern us.
Since pecking on a manual typewriter in my bedroom in grade school, writing has been a passion. Born and raised in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, I have lived in Jacksonville, Florida, since the mid-1990s.
Formerly an editor and reporter for Public Opinion, Chambersburg’s daily newspaper, I later worked in management for the City of Jacksonville and the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville, occasionally writing columns, profiles and other stories for city and UF publications and Web sites.
New era. Blogging for fun. One step, or stone, at a time.
