Born To Talk…The Beginning


Born to Talk describes me perfectly. I love nothing better than meeting new people wherever I go. It could be in a foreign country and equally exciting, standing next to someone in line at the market. I am the one that will smile at you and say hello. If you are wearing something that identifies something about you; a vacation shirt, a volunteer shirt or a sports shirt or hat, I’m most likely going to engage you in conversation. Or perhaps you have the cutest sweater, necklace or pair of shoes; just about anything that strikes some interest. Honestly, if you just have a pleasant smile, that’s about all I need to know, there’s always the weather that opens a conversation.

I’m an equal opportunity talker, young or old, man or woman; I think everyone has a story to tell.

Here’s my story. I was born and raised in the community of Westchester California, (a small community within Los Angeles) where I continue to live today. I was married for 38 years until my husband passed away unexpectedly over 4 years ago. We have two grown kids and a bunch of grandpets.

As with any unexpected life-altering experience, I’ve had to adjust. Fortunately for me, I am surrounded by incredible friends. One of my friends offered me some advice shortly after Butch passed away, she said, “never say no to an invitation.” I took her seriously and haven’t looked back.

You will be entering my world which includes interests in travel, nature, food, sports, and people. I look forward to sharing this with you because I was Born To Talk.
