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.

Member Since: 10/29/2006

Fitness Minutes: 31,199

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.

    You were right I live in Salem, Or. We are luck to be able to drive over the mountain and be in Bend in a couple of hours. About 15 miles south of Bend is a beautiful little community, Sunriver. I've been visiting here for years. My daughter used to have a vacation home here. I do a few craft shows per year. Me and my guy stayed with friends for the weekend. I did a craft show, Fri. and Sat.
    Sometimes we have lots of snow not this time , had to go to the mountain to get snow,
    There was snow on the pass coming home.
    I live in a beautiful state. Mountains on one side the coast 60 miles on the other side .Willamette Valley, great place to live.
    Hope you're enjoying the season and will have a happy holiday.
    Spark on

    Keep in touch my friend! It's hard for me to get to every ones pages and I lose touch sometimes. Not intentional, just lack of brain power on my side emoticon
