About

I have a story in my head and some poetry in my heart, join me at the local library writing group. I will introduce you to my friends and my world and we can all write together. A local woman who is legally blind is in need of a buddy to get to the library for a weekly mid-day writing course. In addition a social outing or a buddy for local grocery shopping would be great too. (I love cats and have 4)
