It seems that since infancy I knew there was more to life than met the eye. Like all people I was bombarded with “beliefs.” I was inquisitive and questioned many beliefs, but I was not the type to “rock the boat.” I just listened quietly, all the while filing concepts and ideas in my brain’s “For Future Reference” file.
From the chrysalis of college, I emerged as a Spanish teacher. Marriage,
children, and entrepreneurial life followed. As an Aquarian and the
Blue Butterfly, I did not like confinement and needed freedom to express
myself. Each metamorphosis built on the previous one, all melding
together to create who I am today. (Not that I was ever flighty!)
After teaching Spanish in New England, I retired to raise our two daughters. They have flourished and grown into beautiful and compassionate young women. Along the way I established Alcara Design which was a successful desktop publishing business. Relocation to another state ultimately led to the dissolution of this business. My creativity then became channeled in the real estate arena where I helped many people attain their dream homes. In all these endeavors I was lovingly encouraged and supported by my husband of many years.
I found energy work as a result of hearing
loss which appears to have begun after attending a Rod Stewart concert
in the 80s. I believe we are self-healing Spiritual beings who are having a
human experience. Over the years my hearing has deteriorated. I have not
yet found how to return the hearing to normal - even with hearing aids.
I know that I will accomplish this if having normal hearing is in my
highest and best interest. As a result of the hearing loss I am an
advocate for those with hearing loss. Currently I am raising the
awareness of hearing loss by accepting the challenge to participate (by
walking and raising funds) in the New England Walk4Hearing.
A true Soul-Sister and fellow-Aquarian, a friend since our college days, Patricia Banker has been a loving supporter and mentor in the creation of my Chakra and Angel pieces. Pat has always had the utmost confidence in me. She often believed that I could do things that were out of my comprehension and expertise. Well, she was often right-on (as we Boomers used to say).
