Sounds good!!! :-)

PostPosted: Oct 17, 2020 22:18    Post subject: Presentation of new members - Julie Wilson from Dallas  

Hi Everyone, I'm Julie Wilson.
I am very much a newbie in this world but am on a very steep learning curve.
I joined the Dallas Gem and Mineral Society after moving to Dallas in 2018. I have traumatic nerve damage which triggered a central nervous condition that greatly affects me physically, medically and causes some cognitive and memory issues. These issues are the reason I bought the house across the street from my parents in Dallas.
As a kid we had been on a few rock hounding trips but it hadn't followed me into adulthood beyond liking them. My dad was a member of DGMS and it was an opportunity for me to get out of the house.
I started on the lapidary side, with a particular passion for opals. Then I met a widower and specimen lover by the name of Warner Ragan. Warner now lives in my guest room and spending most of the last 18 months together has ignited my passion for specimens. My memory is definitely a hindrance but for some reason the minerals stick more than most things do.
I am still very much learning but Warner has been a very good teacher. I don't have any particular preferences when it comes to minerals beyond, what I like. I find myself a fan the intricate and delicate specimens as well as strong bright colors.
Warner isn't particularly comfortable with the internet so I will likely be posting a lot on his/our behalf.
I hope to learn a lot from this group and hopefully contribute as much as I can.

Welcome Julie and Warner,

It's always a pleasure to have new members in the forum. Hope you will enjoy it. Don't forget to have a look at the Spanish version too.

Dany, a Swiss guy from the Alps.
