  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

The future Piano Man

Future Piano Man

This is my son, D. He has been blind since he was born from a very rare genetic disease. He absolutely loves music. And cars, trucks, buses, mowers, blowers, weed eaters, and seatbelts.

He had a surprise waiting for him at preschool today. In the far corner of the playground near the dead rabbit’s hutch, was an old, beat up piano. I’m really shocked that he did as well as he did sharing with the other kids…

    You must be very proud. He’s beautiful.

    I taught a blind teenage girl this past summer as a guest clinician. She was amazing and very very advanced. ! You may want to consider finding him a teacher. I teach the Suzuki method (check out my blogs for more info) but the approach is based on listening, so it would work.

    Enjoy and good luck!
