Category Archives: Movies, Books and Me

In addition to staying active (in an attempt to age “gracefully”), I enjoy a good movie and a well-written book. Documentaries and independent films are a passion of mine and I listen to many, many books on my iPod. I love podcasts like “This American Life” and “The Moth” and listen while I’m exercising, driving or cleaning house.
