Flying through life on a wing and a prayer.

Staying up, moving along, and glad my dad gave me a place to skate every winter.

I'm leading, joining in, and following on my way down from the mountain peak.

I have 6 pics in my gallery


Fill your life with laughter

Laugh a lot at the ups and downs in life, live a lot with great people and good causes, love the lifetime built on each moment.

SparkPoints: 16,656

Fitness Minutes: 9,372

My Goals:
Love others.

Live a healthy life.

Lend my efforts to making the world healthier, happier, and more peaceful.

My Program:
Spend more time with others, physically and emotionally support them, and center on them through the day.

Concentrate on food that is better for my body and the environment and move more daily.

Pray, volunteer, and take a role in the political life of the community.

Personal Information:
I have lived throughout the Intermountain West most of my life and people call me Mary Merth.

I'm older than I ever thought I would be (68) and became -- literally -- one of the first baby boomers as I was born on the day the war ended in Europe 1945.

Other Information:
I have never had time to do all the things I wanted, but I've made my living writing and teaching.

I love skiing, ice skating, and bicycling, but physical problems are preventing that -- at least for now.

I have never been married, never had children, and live alone. I really am surprised that I'm no longer 21.

I haven't traveled as much as I have wanted, but I'm doing the best I can about that now.

I love politics and have volunteered for liberal politicians throughout my adult life. Needless to say I am used to losing more than my share of elections.

My favorite writers and poets are Edna St. Vincent Millay, Robert Frost, Wallace Stegner, Sara Teasdale, Gwendolyn Brooks, Harper Lee, and Langston Hughes.

I like rock and folk music best, but find something I like in most types of music.

Thanks that was so interesting...and the view sounds gorgeous.

You know what else? I am going to join crock pot cooking! I couldn't believe you mentioned it. I have been putting things in the crock pot lately all the time. I'd love new ideas. I think its where I got my diverticulitis because my son likes everything hot and I keep added hot sauce to everything. I have to stop.

take care

Thank you for stopping by my page. That means a lot to me.

So I am full of questions about your house, but feel too nose-y to ask anything! Where do you live? I gather it's somewhere cold because of your background page (which you can never change cause I love it) and because of you ice skating. I didn't get the hang of ice skating - maybe because I tried to learn it later in life. Roller blading was my thing.

I notice most of your immediate friends are from the over 60 you ever come to the chat room?

well take care
