In August 2013 I retired after 35 years of teaching Child Development and Early Childhood Education at Gavilan College in Gilroy. I still teach a few online classes, but I'm gradually morphing into a full time writer, gardener and grandmother.

School Story

I went back to Carlmont for the 40th anniversary celebration of the school and I swear that the climbing rope hanging in the gym was the same one that was there in 1965!

Hi everyone, I attended a meet and greet in Santa Cruz last week, and stayed to hear our classmate Delaine Easten speak. A two-term State Superintendent of Schools and former Legislator, Delaine is running for Governor. She has a great platform, and the experience to carry it off. What she doesn't have are name recognition and money. I hope our California classmates will take the time to visit her web site and contact her campaign staff to find out when she will be speaking near you. Bumper magnets can go a long way to getting her name out there; financial support will help her move up in the polls. If you agree with what Delaine stands for, please support her. We've never had a woman governor in California; isn't it time we did? www.delaineforgovernor.com

I too was hit hard by Lorna's sudden passing after so many months of painful treatments and apparent recovery.  Lorna came vividly back into my life when she moved to the Santa Cruz area where I live and we spent many happy afternoons sharing meals, walking in the countryside, and talking.  My oldest daughter was diagnosed with cancer shortly after Lorna's diagnosis, and so both of them have been in my daily thoughts through both of their battles.  (My daughter is so far holding her own.)

I will remember Lorna as most of us last saw her - vibrant and happy on the dance floor at our 50th reunion. Marlene

Liz, Thank you for sharing the touching information about Kathy Darnell. I'm so glad I had a chance to chat with her and you at the reunion, and to visit you shortly after. And now we also hear about Wayne Culp and Lorna Hunt. Life is increasingly fragile and so very precious.
