I danced with the Harkness Ballet of New York from 70 to 73. I continued to dance till I was 50 when I was waylaid by 4 hip surgeries from 2007 to 2011, leaving me chronically ill, but content. After getting a bachelor's and master's in English (1989 and 1992 respectively), I started, in my last few years of dance, to use my writing with solo choreography, ie., performance art stuff. I've worked at University of Cincinnati' College-Conservatory of Music as Director of Publications, completely revamping their alumni magazine; at UC's Center for Women's Studies as Publications Coordinator; and at Morehead State University as Director of Publications and Printing Services. My current home-publishing service (for book design, editing, promotional work, etc., since 1997) is http://TheKarmaPress.com.
I concentrated on poetry in university. I read Karma Tarot cards from a Tibetan Buddhist perspective in Cincinnati, OH.
I continue to dance in my heart and my hands and anything else still moving after 4 hip replacements . . . like most aging dancers.
I continue to seek compassion and wisdom, and will do so till I transform out of this lifetime . . . and beyond
