Information Written by GypsyButterfly
born in Hershey, Pa. raised in Palmyra, Pa. majored in psychology. have 3 grown-up children. most of my adult life I had either home-based businesses, or I free-lanced my art. alot of my jobs in the system were in retail; but, often ended up in day-care jobs. enjoyed teaching the after-school children special interests: such as art, geography, birding, the Bible, and even chess. In the last 9 years, I have been working strongly on my writing gift. published 17 poetry chapbooks with art & photography of mine in them. love to observe birds. don't like the fast lane. I also put singing concerts together for shut-ins / nursing homes (easy audience). so, here at the Autumn of my life: I am a full-time poet (my dream), free-lance artist *grin*, photographer, singer, and sometimes counselor. had some health issues; decided to just be a better me. and, hopefully make a difference in encouraging others; maybe give some lift. I am so enjoying this site. my singing had taken a back seat, because of the health issues, and then mild depression sets in--when energy gets too low. this was just what I needed to get me to singing, again. singing is quite healing.
