I’m Handing it over to the Spiders!

My house that is! Years ago (maybe about a century, it seems), I vacuumed daily, cleaned the bathrooms daily, polished furniture upstairs one day and down the next, polished silver once a week . . .  Maybe I was a little crazy. My house now looks like Miss Havisham’s with spider webs draped on and under everything. Spiders crawl around unimpeded by the besieged owner of this property, brazen in the knowledge that I no longer care, and that I’m no threat to their industry. Carry on spiders! I have more important things to do now. Books to write, stories to read, movies to see, wine to drink, cake to eat, and friends to entertain and be entertained by.

Life Experiences

My life took an exciting turn when I left my teaching job in Pennsylvania to be Head of Library at the Learning Center School of Qatar Foundation.

I lived in Qatar for eight years, traveling during every vacation, and enjoying the experience of living in a different culture. Recently, I returned to the United States.
