"Oy Marvella Chodich lieb Meine Tiur Marvella, Getah Marvella Chodich Talkia lieb"
My mother's Yiddish lullaby she often sang to me.
There are so many facets to the makeup of a person's life. Obviously an individual's abilities, nurturing through others, experiences that formed your directions and certainly events over which often there is little control - except as to how one reacts. Certainly mine is no different as I attempt hereinto relate a mostly private but personal image of what I felt were my life's challenges and rewards. Perhaps my thoughts will encourage you, the reader, to search within yourself to find what shaped your own life's path.
