Greetings from Easton, on (and this year, sometimes under) the Delaware River. Things
have been ultra-hectic! I “retired” from counseling to devote my time to free-lance
writing, one of the dreams I had when I was a student at Moravian. I write for various
Internet websites, primarily using pseudonyms. Most of my writing has been about psychology
(practice and theory), parapsychology, the scientific study of psi (psychic phenomena),
and the paranormal. I enjoy the writing because I never know what questions I will be asked.

As you may remember, before the Bethlehem Tourism Authority was dismembered, I planned
walking ghost tours of Historic Bethlehem. I wrote the scripts and served as hostess/expert
on the paranormal. This fall, I’ll give a noncredit course at Northampton Community
College on Halloween legends, traditions, and customs, witchcraft in Pennsylvania, and
ghosts. I volunteer for www.allexperts.com, providing expertise in psychology, the paranormal,
and Western European shamanism.
In April, I was accepted as a contributing editor for www.suite101.com, writing about
the paranormal realm in the society and culture community.

By the time this issue reaches you, winter will have passed us by. I have spent time and
emails trying to reach some of you. Much mail has been returned; phone numbers have been
disconnected. If you have moved to your retirement home, let Alumni House know where you
are! And please take time to write even a little something.
