I’m in the final stages of moving from Lake Sara in Effingham, Illinois, down to Lake of Egypt, south of Marion, Illinois.

Shawnee National Forest had several groups that I associate with including, hiking group for seniors and a kayaking club. I’ve spent COVID hiking, biking, kayaking, reading and painting. I spend time with friends and my doggies RV-ing. I’ve been very active in politics and found that my witness is most effective in writings and speaking of God’s justice and mercy.
