I retired from academia in 2003 and began to take a closer look at myself and figure out - what next? I had accumulated a lot of stress in my life, as many of us do, and so I was ready for a change. I also learned that I had a mild form of heart disease aggravated by stress, so I reduced my stress by exercising more, watching my diet, practicing yoga, meditating, and creating more stained glass. As I let go of the stress, worry and fear I carried around for many years, I began to focus more on the loving human being I am and began living in the present moment. My heart, no longer agitated by stress became peaceful. The calm, internal focus of my yoga and meditation practice has carried into my creative endeavors of stained glass and writing.
