I grew up in the Midwest, but I have always wanted to discover other ways of life, so upon graduating from high school, I took a year of Spanish so that I could visit my friend from the Dominican Republic that next summer.
Then I went to a university to major in French and study teaching. Upon receiving my Bachelor's, I became a teaching assistant in the French Alps to French high school students. It was there that I met my future husband, Francis. We got married and since he was French, I lived a total of 15 years in France. We had 2 children, who have lived in both the US and France and are bilingual.
I love the French language and I loved many things of that culture which I miss a lot. We were going to move back to France 9 years ago when my husband died suddenly. So I am here in the US. I miss him terribly.
Things that interest me are yoga, walking in nature, reading, writing, vegetarianism, and of course, French. I am also interested in living ecologically friendly and in making friends worldwide to share what we have in common as well as learn about what makes us different. Reading, Yoga, Vegetarianism, Nature walks, Singing, Music, Ecology I lost my soul mate almost a decade ago. French teacher, translator.
My Vision for the Future
Worldwide peace. Cooperation among countries.
