Hi, all! I am glad to be joining your community. I am 80 years old and have lived in Alaska since 1969. I love it here...would not live anywhere else. I've had a varied, active, and interesting life (at least to me...lol.) I lived in Connecticut until I was 9; then moved to Colorado, where I spent 20+ years. Started playing music professionally in Colorado (first played banjo; then added electric bass; arthritis has caused me to give up the banjo, but I still play bass.) Our group got a job playing music in Alaska, first in Fairbanks, then in Kodiak. I met and married a man in Kodiak; much later we separated. We had plans to build a house on land we had under Homesite Claim on Spruce Island. After our separation I went there and with the help of a friend, built the house where I lived for the next 20 years. I am a writer; have had four books published and will have the fifth within a couple of weeks. I am retired, except for a very part-time jewelry and gift business, and need to supplement my meager Social Security.

Those are some lofty goals to start. Nothing wrong with that as long as you know it will take time to get there. Set yourself a schedule to prioritize your goals. Let me know how I can help.

Great to see that you've added some goals Fran!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Welcome to WA. It’s participation and persistence to get there and also takes a lot of creative thought to process...
Yes, thank you for following. And I am hungry to get started.
I am finding so much information for goals to success. This is surely a great opportunity with just what I need to develop independence and dreams.
Yes, www is a big world brought together with WA...
I’m just following my heart... if you’re into books, this will work out. Giving it time to sink in.

Truly grateful

Hi, Fran and many thanks for the follow. I'm following you back now.
Interesting profile. You can certainly teach me about how it feels when you find your place in the world. I'm happy where I live now, but I'm thinking that 4 years is a little too much.
Maybe it's time to visit Alaska ;-)
Best wishes for 2019!

The tours up bay to look at the glaciers are fabulous! Not only is the scenery magnificent, but you see lots of wildlife. You must come visit sometime.

Good luck to you in WA

Thanks much, neighbor! We were fortunate here in Gustavus. The earthquake didn't touch us. I didn't even know there was one until someone told me.

It's always good to meet another member of this wonderful community.
