I want to come to work each week to see my friends and do what I can to help out.
I like to volunteer to help others in need which included going to New Orleans 10 different times to help victims from the Katrina hurricane and flood.
An early memory of art was playing in the marching and concert bands in high school and college. I played and marched at half time at the Chicago Bears games once a year for four years and marched in the inaugural parade at the presidential swearing-in for Nixon.
There are two special things that make me happy more than other reasons: 1. my children and how they all turned out in their lives, and 2. going to places where I can see wildlife/nature, like the Wildlife Safari near Gretna.
Read stories, testimonies, observations and remembrances of arts impacting lives.
