In 1972 I graduated from the College of Saint Elizabeth, Convent Station, NJ with some pretty powerful, wonderful and talented women. I have stayed in touch with many of them. However, recently I’ve had the opportunity to work with Sister Deborah Humphreys on several projects.

On our last project, a staff training retreat, she and my husband, Artist Ray Horner, Jr , had their own drumming jam session after dinner. I wish I had it on tape. There they were two great artists beating working with an assortment of congas drums.

Just when many our age consider slowing down the learning pace Sister Deborah, a part of Sisters of Charity’s community, is working on yet another degree. This time it is a Masters in Fine Art.

Today she sent Ray and I her new blog. it is called A Work in Process.

I just had to share it with as much of the world that will ,I hope, see it.

I am amazed at her artistic skills and bottomless vase full of gifts. This blog not only contains breathtaking photos but captivating art work and a story written in Spanish.

Her picture called, Reflection, is stunning. I wish she had it for sale on the site or prints available as gifts.(Smile)

It is important that you also visit her other site, Conventional Wisdom. She is a master poet and Haiku genius. I actually created a special category in my article directory, articles for boomers just for her to submit her poetry in the future.

So if you want to stay young at heart and mind visit this awesome site plus her other sites. And the next time you start thinking about sitting on your gifts and talents think about my friend, Sister Deborah.

I am so very proud of her and thankful for her inspiration.
