As I write this, I just realized that at 52 years old, I have spent exactly half my life in Vermont.  Wow!  That’s why this quote from former President, Calvin Coolidge of Vermont has so much meaning to me.  I’ve always felt that one can accomplish anything with hard work and persistence.   I reflect back at some of the goals that I have accomplished here in Vermont because of persistence:  MBA from UVM, a career that led me to interesting environments and people, solo bike ride back home to Ohio, all “25 Bicycle Rides in Vermont” during summer of 2011, many hikes and treks all over the state, raising two beautiful outstanding daughters, and a happy marriage of 25 years.  It has been a lovely adventure…
