I live in Squaw Valley, Northern California and love the seasons.
For many years, I worked as an international travel journalist and specialized in writing and photographing art, culture, destinations, food. France is my favorite country. Several of my worldwide adventures are so funny and bizarre that I've written a memoir--it's coming soon. Title WORTH A JOURNEY, The Adventures of a Travel Journalist.
In addition I am painting landscapes in oils. Last year I had a one-woman gallery exhibition in Naples Florida. This May 2017 my work will hang in the Tiburon Town Hall in the atrium and council chambers.
I love listening to classical music and the pianist LANG LANG--his skill, style and sensitivity--and adore his playing Beethoven's 4th and 5th both Concertos for piano with conductor Christoph Eschenbach. Also other composers such as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov concertos. YouTube allows me to listen whenever I'm in the mood.
Our family loves Squaw Valley and we enjoy our house tremendously. Maintenance and renovations are part of owning a house in the mountains and there are always something we can find to improve.
We enjoy having guests as we love to share the beauty of the valley. And also the super activities that Squaw offers--great skiing, hiking and the variety of fun weekend events. Guests also encourages us to make improvements as the funds go to updating the house and garden. Last summer we replant a dozen flowering bushes that didn't make it through previous winter's heavy snow. But this winter was uniquely snowy so I am wondering how the new bushes survived this amazing snow fall
