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.

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.

Member Since: 10/29/2006

Fitness Minutes: 34,734

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.

    Loved your story of your July 4th family gatherings. Sounds like you had a great time. So many things from my childhood/youth seem wonderful in reflection. I didn't give them enough thought at the time...did any of us? Our July 4ths were almost always centered around the parade (marching band always marched and our school was so small we were all in the band from little on), the water ski show on the river, fireworks, etc etc. Our town was small, too, and we could wander around and meet up with friends, do whatever we pretty much wanted as long as we didn't get into trouble. What a different world it is today. Better in some ways, but the innocence of those days is what I miss the most. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for keeping an eye on me. I do appreciate your visits. I'm getting my house ready to sell. Busy..busy time but it will be worth it. I mowed for 2 hours then went to the pool to cool down for a hour. A few years ago and many pounds I wouldn't have been able to do all this work myself. Life is good! emoticon
    How have you been doing? Have you been going to the pool? emoticon

    Thank you for birthday greeting for my mom, but it is my grandson's birthday. It was sweet of you to say that though. emoticon
