72 year old retired lady who loves to paint, write poetry, I have written and self published 5 books 'A Hairdresser's Diary' a short story 'A Cut Above Discrimination', 'Say it With A Poem', 'Flabbermouth Moments' and A Hairdresser's Diary: Scissors Retired' all to do with my careers in hairdressing, modeling and makeup artistry.The Sequel for my book ' A Hairdresser's Diary / Scissors Retired' will soon be published. I am 53 years married with three wonderful children and two very special grandchildren. Chronic pain is something I am not new to. I have suffered for over 48 of my 72 years. I learned to paint as a way to deal with my daily pain. I started painting on clothing and have graduated to canvas in both oil and acrylics. I have been writing poetry since the age of 8. I have had 30 surgeries both minor and major and I know that unless we find a way to deal with our pain we can surely go crazy. I am proud to say I am a two time cancer survivor. I do believe that Laughter is a great medicine and I practice what I preach. I am the founder of a group called SAS " Share A Smile" I so enjoy cooking and can cook something from almost every country in the world.
