(Jul 15, 2008) Hard to believe it’s been 45 years. I’ve been happily married for 41 years to Edward Goldman (professor). We have two wonderful children: Ari, working in editing and publishing in New York City, and Dalia, a financial journalist who lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband Andrew. 

Dalia went farther in journalism than I. My undergraduate work was in French Literature (merci, Mlle. Arnold). I completed doctoral work in counseling and child psychology and practiced for 35 years, retiring two years ago.

Now I serve as a presiding judge for the Hamilton County (Ohio) Board of Elections, do volunteer work, spend more time trying to be a better friend and a better daughter, and attempt to satisfy intense wanderlust to travel the world, which we manage to do six or seven times a year, just as Peachy Schulman predicted. I am grateful for life’s blessings and continue to look forward to the future.

(July 14, 2013) Status quo and extremely grateful for life's blessings.
