I retired in 2007, to start working on my gift, prior to retiring I started putting in motions the things I wanted to do once I retired, not waiting until I retired, started before, what I call planting the seed. There is a Gift in everyone, you have to take time out to soul search yourself to see what it is that you like to do. It gives me joy, peace and serenity to take time out to do those things I enjoy! I also write poetry, love creating abstract painting,taking pictures, just being creative. I am authentic, real, original, just one of a kind. That's my life and living every moment.
