My name is Marsha and I live in the suburbs of Detroit. I am semi retired and have been curious all my life. I love learning and try to fit a little in each day.
I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I moved to San Francisco, CA at 19. In California, I lived in San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley. I went to and graduated from UC Berkeley. I moved to Detroit after living in CA for 8 years.
I live with my dog Bonnie who has been my companion for 13 years. I go out to listen to live music, especially jazz, and have been doing so for about 7 years. Originally when I moved to Detroit, It was the musical soul of Detroit that drew me in. Now I have the time to enjoy it all. We have a wonderful art museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts. It is in jeopardy of being dismantled by a state appointed financial overseer to pay Detroit’s debts. There are recently so many art galleries opening in the area.
I am also interested in politics both global and local and occasionally the news enrages me.
I have been getting more interested in food and cooking now that I have some time. I experiment with food and am getting more adventurous in my cooking.
I am learning to play the hammered dulcimer and enjoying the experience. I am beginning to play with others. I really enjoy going out for live music in Detroit, especially jazz. I try to get out several times a week. There are so many good venues in Detroit that there is jazz every night of the week.
I have a flower garden in my yard and enjoy the flowers.
