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: 18,080

Fitness Minutes: 10,223

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.

Awesome Goodie, Starr!! So happy to hear from you. I see you had a wonderful trip. Would love to hear about it when you have time. Sometimes hard to get back in the swing of things when you've been away, but I'm sure we'll see you around more as time goes on! We had a great anniversary...nothing special, just out riding the countryside and stopping where we (I...since I was driving) wanted. Hugs and love, Jeannie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
