Ten Things I Can’t Do Without

  1. My husband who is always willing to wait while I shoot photos.
  2. The first cup of tea in the morning—”memories of things British.”
  3. My camera—obviously!
  4. Travel—and the journal I write in religiously at the end of each travel day.
  5. Books—I am an avid reader of novels and biographies in English, German, and with a little more effort in French.
  6. Collecting original art—paintings by unknown artists that catch my eye, but also pottery, particularly Native American pottery. 
  7. My iPad—serves as my newspaper, encyclopedia, and tool for immediate contact with friends.
  8. My newly repaired heart (that should perhaps top the list).
  9. Many friends—here, there, and everywhere—with whom I try hard to keep in touch.
  10. A piece of chocolate at night to help me sleep.
