I enjoyed my first year as Sr. Administrative Assistant in Anthropology, and enjoy working with the undergraduates and being back on the main campus. I took time off at the end of the year to have a total knee replacement, and once again can enjoy walking on such a beautiful campus. My first grandchild (Augustus John) was born in February to my oldest daughter and her wife, and my youngest daughter is engaged. I continue to paint in my studio at The Alameda Artworks, and love the creative energy that comes with it. Babies, weddings, art and being able to smell the roses on campus are beautiful things to look forward to each day.
