I am a proud-to-say-it old person (71) who loves to know all about the world. I was an actor/producer/director/gofer for a small touring theater company after theater school and then a librarian after library school. After all of this, I taught school at the Alamo Navajo Indian Reservation in New Mexico USA. I now live in a small town in Tennessee. I love traveling, reading, storytelling, teaching, and organizing things. All of these came in handy in my work life and now I am using them in my volunteer life. The picture of me was taken when I was 17 years old and I usually think of myself as looking like that until I look in a mirror, which rarely happens.
Some of my volunteer jobs: dish-washing, cataloging (books and historical stuff), copying & labeling DVDs and CDs, reading to children, dog sitting (sometimes with house-sitting, but it's the dog that counts), organizing children's programs, keeping up with those two buckets that are needed once a month on a Thursday.
Other people I never knew about volunteered to do things that helped me during my childhood and working life. It's my turn to help people who don't know I'm doing it.
I would love to have postcards of anything you would like to send me.
- your city, town, state, nation (now or historical)
- things you like to do
- paintings of your artists
- cartoons, TV, movies in your country
- Absolutely anything else that you like! I am not picky at all. Made by you? Yes. In an envelope? Yes. Anything.
