Oh dear, I've been tagged

Okay....7 secrets that you may not know about me...hmmmmm.....
1. I am a retired art therapist and marriage and family therapist.

2. I lived in Perth, Western Australia while teaching art therapy at Edith Cowan University...the first art therapy program in the country. I've taught everything from 3 yr olds to graduate courses and am still teaching workshops. I retired from teaching art therapy grad courses at the U of H/Clear Lake about 5 years ago.

3. I play BeJeweled 2 on my computer late at night or when I can't sleep.

4. I was a potter for 15 years before becoming a therapist.

5. I can't believe I'm seventy. Only my body tells me so.

6. I love chocolate and coffee, not just love, I mean REALLY LOVE.

7. I've been married to the same man all my life. I love him, too...most days.

You're 70!?! Good for you! And since everyone else is confessing, I have to confess to being a Bejeweled addict myself at times. Like you said - especially if I can't sleep. Popcap is another good one for mindlessness. I love the quilts you're doing. I would love to see them in person - they look amazing.

I know, I can't believe I'm in my 50's!!! I get a kick when I get "hit on" and my come back is usually, "Darling, I'm old enough to be your mother!" LOl....I do hope to live to be 100!

Hi Kay, I am a recovered bejeweled addict. I would love to have coffee with you and tap you for some advice. Currently, I am in the middle of obtaining my MS in counseling and would love to incorporate art therapy into my future practice. I will probably specialize in adolescents.
Can I have a half cup of advice? I love your self portrait after the wrinkle fairy visited. mary, unbelievably aged 51+.
