“Things could be worse” is an important attitude for me. It helps me to look at any situation with perspective, and to be grateful for what I have.
In my blog, I write about issues that affect retired or soon-to-be-retired people, women, and the environment. Some of the issues are serious situations we need to face. Others are ideas that occurred to me, that I thought would be interesting to readers of this blog.
I am retired from teaching communication studies at midwest colleges and universities for 28 years. After my teaching career, I worked as a freelance news reporter, communication consultant, and energy auditor. Yes, those are three very different jobs, but they use similar skills: observation, research, and writing.
This blog started in 2014 as a way for me to keep learning, keep writing, and meet new people. I hope that it is helpful to readers.

I am available to speak to groups about personal and business communication issues, both oral and written. If you need a nonverbal communication trainer for your employees, please contact me to discuss the types of training that I can provide.
