The world is full of stress and seemingly endless demands for our time and attention.
People are disconnected from each other.
Personal contact and connection seems harder to find.
I made the decision to do something to change that; I want to make the world a friendlier, calmer, more connected place.
At first I started by recording and posting daily YouTube videos - Moment with Maryann. They are a combination of personal observations, friendly visits and a bit of inspiration.
Recently, I realized that there is also a deeper purpose for these connections.
At the age of 24, I was a young wife with an extraordinary husband. Suddenly and quite unexpectedly, he was killed in an automobile accident. Overnight I went from being a young wife to a young widow. Family and friends were extremely supportive and helpful throughout this time. But ultimately, I had to figure out how to move on with my life.
Through years of discovery and exploration, I was fortunate enough to find my new path, connect with my current husband, together raise a vibrant son & build the life we now share.
