We have quite a few musicians--you, Katie, and Mickey and her husband, ahd Jana, who sings, and there are other singers, too, but I don't remember who. I have no talents--always wished I did. If I could have been anything in the world I'd like to have been an opera singer. Now retired, and sighted, I love volunteering for bookshare and helping people who need sighted help with their validatations, as well as validating on my own. I've become acquainted with so many new authors and books through bookshare, as well as my volunteer work in the library and the library's used-bookstore.
