Tracy and Ilana in western North Carolina in the late 1990s. And yes, the name of the mountain is quite amusing!

Peter on his boat. Peter and I have been friends since the late 1980s. He is always taking on difficult challenges (like climbing Mt. Everest and marketing his screenplay)! I continue to appreciate his ability to deal with the painful facets of life...and to be there in my own tough times.
David and Leslie are neighbor friends, and David's my local handyman. Leslie wouldn't let me take her picture....neither would their dog Fraser.
Here I am recently with my previous director, Becca, in front of the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. Becca is great - we talk about a lot more than work! I wish she wasn't leaving CCAE.

And a closeup of Scott, our super nice super helpful Cambridge Center tech coordinator who keeps the computers functioning.

Julie and David at their West Palm Beach home. Julie is the daughter of Perry Belle, recently deceased, who was my mother's best friend for over 40 years.
Now why is this photo of me taken nearly 20 years ago doing in my friends gallery? I'm just trying to get your attention. This is me in my once fancy evening dress after having my hair cut 24 inches and getting a perm -- and I'm unfortunately I'm not likely to look that way again!
