As educated women, we know that our active lives are essential to our health and well-being. We also work hard to improve the lives of other women as well. We set our goals, we pursue them with zest and we reach them. We are role models. As educated women, we know how to do many important things, but how will we know when it is OK for us to do less? Will we recognize the joy that attends our ever-changing lives? Perhaps educated women age better because we know how to live better.
GENERAL MEETING: ROCKS THAT DAZZLE
ON MARCH 24 – PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN DATE – We shall feature a lapidarian, John Miller, who creates and offers museum-worth gemstone jewelry at “Tomorrow’s Heirlooms” on Chambers Street in Princeton. Some of us were mesmerized by him and his crafts at a recent visit, and we are sure you will be, too. He does not consider himself to be an artist but a technician who has learned to extract beauty from nature.
Several years ago Mr. Miller took an early retirement from senior management in the corporate world to collect rocks and to make jewelry professionally, both of which had been engrossing hobbies of his for half a century. He says, “I used to work at a real job, and now I play with rocks full time. It’s the most rewarding thing I’ve done.” He now goes on excursions to South America and Arizona expressly to add to his stone supply and has many friends searching on his behalf. He conducts seminars for earth science students and does voluntary educational programs for children with emotional and behavioral problems.
Mr. Miller plans to bring examples featuring some of his work as a lapidary, as a gemologist, and as a jewelry maker.
On March 21 our hostess will be Doris Tazalaar. Amsterdam, by Ian McEwan, will provide the topic of the day. A light luncheon is served at each meeting. Call Doris if you will be joining us.
