Hi Friends — I’m Leslie Green, a 60 year old Hoosier gal, living and working in southern Indiana. I grew up in New Mexico, but was transplanted to the Midwest in 1972. I like many parts of our country and have traveled the US extensively in my life, but I thrive in this hilly, forested area where I can experience the beauty of all four seasons.
I’m married to Ed who has been my partner for over 40 years. We have two beautiful grown sons, Jordan and Julian. Jordan and his wife Rose have given us a wonderful granddaughter Cecilia May “CeCe” and a sweetest grandson ever, Theodore Wolfe “Theo.” They are both such a joy. They all live nearby so holidays and special occasions can be spent together. I’m so fortunate to have a great job at Stone Belt Arc supporting people with disabilities that enables me to see people, both clients and staff, reaching toward their full potential. I work hard to maintain a positive outlook on life. Having a loving family, good friends and amazing co-workers give me such a satisfying social life.
I’m also privileged to have the ability to pursue my interests, many of which have become passions. For as long as I can remember, these passions have driven me to learn everything I can about them, to find others with shared interests, and to pursue these activities with gusto. The internet has been such an essential resource for building my knowledge base and I hope what I contribute with this blog will provide useful information to you about your interests.
My biggest passion right now is backpacking and hiking and a good number of my posts will be on these topics. However I also have great interest in and spend much of my free time cooking and reading. In addition, I have a passion for people and hope to share the stories of those I admire for their contributions and uniqueness.
Creating this site has become a new passion. I’d appreciate any feedback, comments and suggestions you may have.
