Barbara in concert 13

Message from Barbara

Born in Argentina, I grew up primarily in New York State, the eldest of 11 children who are now spread out all across the United States from Boston to Oahu. I did my undergraduate work in English and Education at a small women's college in Erie, Pennsylvania and my graduate work in Victorian Literature in Detroit, Michigan. I retired from teaching a few years ago and am still loving every millisecond of my newly "refound" life. I see "retirement" as just another transition to something even better. It has given me an opportunity to tap into a lot of interests that had been put on hold while I was raising children and working. The most mundane of things for me are now a thrill. My renewed life involves the outdoors, lots of music -- fiddling my fiddle and dabbling in other instruments and playing in a small orchestra every week -- writing and photography. I've been married for 39 years now and we have three wonderful children and two precious grandsons. I enjoy playing tourist here in my own "backyard" in the Los Angeles area and wherever else we might happen to travel. And, of course, I love writing and photography and am grateful to all who have inspired and continue to inspire my thoughts and adventures.
