Retired journalist and empty-nester moves south to write in her aviary!
Married to Bob, an ER doc and original maverick who specialized in Emergency Medicine long before it was considered an actual medical sub-specialty. We have two adult children: the firstborn, our daughter is the Bride, who married our son-in-law the Groom in 2010. We were happy to welcome our four year old grand daughter, the Love Bug, and our two year old baby grandson to the world! The Bride, is also an ER doc/pastry chef and her husband is a physician as well, working in Pulmonary/Critical Care at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.
Our son, the Rocker, is the Talent. It’s good to have another artist in the family! A gifted guitarist, he stayed north of the Mason Dixon line when we moved to play with his band, The Parlor Mob. They had a sensational decade of world touring and produced three albums; “And You Were a Crow” with the help of producer Jacquire King, and the iTunes Best Rock Album of the Year 2011 “Dogs,” and most recently “Cry Wolf.” The Rocker will also back up other artists/friends on the guitar, has appeared on David Letterman, among other TV shows.
Currently, the Rocker is composing music for the film industry in LA! And congratulations to our new Daughter-in-Law/Bride, KiKi and our son who just celebrated their wedding on a gorgeous winter day in the California desert
MountainMornings is a series of expository essays; both public and personal. It’s about transitions: from north to south; from journalist to blogger; from Mom to Mother-of-the-Bride and Groom, Mother-in-Law, and now Nana!
Beware of a certain politically progressive feminist slant!
Oh, and with some pictures of our rescue dogs too – the hundred pound Buddha went across his rainbow bridge in 2013, leaving us with our emergency back-up dog, little Ms Bean.
