Divorced, now married!

Date Married:

Sept 14, 2011

How/Where did you meet your Spouse/Partner:

After checking out the on-line dating sites (which I wrote a play, The Funnel of Love, about!), I signed up for It's Just Lunch and met a smart funny man--Nick-- who lives by serindipity and laughter.

What have you and your family been doing since graduation:

Eight professional jobs in 40 years--all in public history or arts administration. Pullman, WA to Olympia, WA to Washington, DC to Boise, Idaho to Raleigh, NC to Orlando to Woodside, CA. My life is about art 24/7. For 8 years now, I haved directed a 583 acre artists community in the mountains south of SF, Djerassi Resident Artists Program (djerassi.org). Every month we host 12 artists from around the world. I live on the property with my husband, Nick. We married just before I took the position.
What else? Written a few plays, sang in a cabaret, narrated The Night Before Christmas with the Orlando Philharmonic, competed in a celebrity ballroom competition. Travel as much as I can 38 cruises aand counting. I also write a lot and have given a ton of speeches (check out my graduation speech on YouTube for a crowd of 8000!). In retrospect, glad my high school suicide attempts didn't succeed. Come visit!

School Story:
(If you are a Guest Member please describe your relationship to the Class of 1969)

Doing drugs with my hippie friends, intellectual conversations with my straight ones. Flirting with danger by dating a couple of blocs. High jump champion of PG County. Skipping 44 days my senior year. Sex in the costume shop backstage. Plays, plays and more plays. Dark of the Moon, Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, Bury the Dead, Antigone was my first (oh light of the rising sun), running track with Jane Hill. My Volkswagon, trips to Atlantic City, Mateus and French bread from Iverson Mall, hanging out at Shoppes, writing my column for The Cavalcade, working on the yearbook, loading up folks to go to the Ranch Drive-In, harassing Mr. Hrezo (may he rest in more peace than he had as a principal). Concerts at the Alexandria Roller Rink (Big Brother & the Holding Company, Jeff Beck, Union Gap, the Boxtops, Fudge) Seeing the Stones in the fall of 1969. My best friendship with Donna Neuwirth which has lasted over 50 years now. My close friendships with Hilary Lord and Dave Burgess and Pam Berge and David Draper and Nancy McCullough and Bob and then Pete Bergman and their whole family (who took care of me as if I were one of their own). My crypto-fascist eating club pals--Stephen Tinius, Eric Wurzbacher, Karl Gebhardt, Steve Jent, and David Bischoff (RIP) Being in love, by turns, with Bill Mather, John Jarvis, Chris Jennison, Pete Mirones, Danny Shipman, Dexter Reynolds, Russ Gann, Tom Ruby, Larry Sauter, Ron Smith, Rim Gardner, Larry Ahern, Steve "Konrad" Tinius, Mark Frederickson, Mike Dulion, Bob Klaus, oh my gosh--my diary is full of love and devotion and insanity.

Hey, big brother. . . Can't crash your reunion this year but I hope you are well and happy!

Oh, what a shame. David and I became reacquainted when his office was in the same building as mine in DC when he was publishing Stardate Magazine in the mid 80s. We had spoken several times in recent years and I mailed him the old issues of his magazine as he said he didn’t have copies anymore. (And I am a saver of memories). The last time few times we spoke, he was planning to drive down and visit but it was clear he was not well. I suspected alcohol and asked if he was okay. . .he said he was fine but I was not convinced  I didnt initiate any more calls. And he never came to visit.  RIP old friend

I always forget how relatively close in age our teachers were to us!  Only 73?  Too young. Mr. Meyers was a kind and excellent teacher. I found myself taking Physics in a year "earlier" than most students as I had already taken biology in 9th grade and so felt like a fish out of water with the "older" kids. Mr. Meyers was steady and focused, never allowing any distractions in his classroom. RIP.
