About Norma




I’m a 70+ old woman who lives mostly happily in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota with my husband of 50+ years.

I’m Wife, Mom, Mother-in-law, Granny, Retiree, Senior Citizen, and a self-identified Vibrant Old Woman.

I love people, little ones and big ones. I love dogs, all dogs but especially our Bichon, Josie. I love good simple food (though I really don’t love cooking) and conversation. I love music and all kinds of art. I love flowers and trees and the smell of soil. I love rivers and houseboats. I love the sky, the rain, the first snow fall and the change of seasons.  I love a good story and my life is a good one! I look forward to sharing it with you…And helping you find your wisdom for the Gran Finale of life.

“You are the storyteller of your own life, and you can create your own legend, or not.” – Isabel Allende

 I believe that you are significant and deserve to be noticed, heard, and encouraged. I believe we each one are created and loved by God. I believe we are all connected and affect one another.
