Diana R. Hunt resides in Ligonier, She joined the Beanery Writers to relearn how to write while recuperating from a serious automobile accident, and to associate with intelligent people who appreciate the art of communication.
As a child she lived in Germany, where she listened to European folktales, and read stories that were ultimately animated by Walt Disney (stories which most people now believe are his!}. She discovered the magic of art at a young age. Her goal is to combine her love of writing and art to see what happens…

I have a degree in Architecture and have an interest in the visual arts. Through the years, I’ve been an architect, a woodworker and spent some years homesteading on a small farm. My interest in writing became (more…)

|Although I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you all in person, I feel I know you through Carolyn. I have to wonder if I’m allowed here—not being a Methodist!!
However we cannot all be perfect and must make allowances for others.
I am, however, a native Rhode Islander, and therefore have some stature in the world. (Carolyn is also a Rhode Islander by birth and heritage…)
Although Fran cares for her housebound husband, she does do research on the computer. She has done an impressive amount of research for Carolyn, who is extremely grateful for Fran’s help.
|“Every new beginning is a merging of holding on and letting go.” Twenty-five years ago, and after the first twenty-five years of living, a new way of life emerged. Today I find myself reinventing my life again, learning about my natural rhythms and inclinations.
Part of that new was discovering a flier for The Beanery Writing group, which meets in Latrobe, Pa., where I live. This event is quite synchronistical as I am embarking on the process of honing and publishing my skills.
I’ve been a “semi-hermit” and a “semi-monk,” and sometimes I’m a gypsy by day and a pirate by night. Seriously ~ I’m degreed in the education field, technically skilled and a seasoned overseas traveler, with both personal and published writings. I teach an eclectic T’ai Chi, energy, balance, movement program along with private therapeutic lessons, and I create imaginative cards and do silk dying. I’d like to offer my ideas and concepts as resources for compensation.
My time is carved, allowing for avenues to expand and to invent a livelihood while having fun. My personal time includes reading, writing, walking, watching foreign films, and learning ‘The Art of Enjoying Time’ from my cat, Lillian. —posted June 15, 2007
|While cleaning my files I discovered I (unsuccessfullyl) submitted articles to magazines as early as the 1980s. Before that I had one article published in my college newspaper. This ultimately led to my starting the Beanery Writers Group with Debbi’s strong encouragement.
My active professional photojournalism began in 1990 with a local newspaper. (more…)
|Debbi cofounded the Beanery Writers Group with Carolyn, and remained active in the group until she moved out of the area.
Hi All, It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you. I really miss you all and the time we spend together sharing. Well, here is my bio. I am a United Methodist pastor in Western Pennsylvania. I am currently appointed to the New Hope Parish—three churches in Sykesville and Dubois and live in Sykesville. I am married and Ed is my spouse. He is a pastor too. We have 3 kids–all adult, Brandey, Justin and his wife Amy, and Jonathan. And another relative you all are interested in as our founder Carolyn who is my cousin-in-law, through Ed. I write a lot and love it. I love preaching too.That is why I appreciated being part of this group. I am planning to return to the group soon. I have some denominational work and a trip to Europe coming up. That takes a lot of time out of my schedule . The hour and a half drive each way sometimes is a problem too but I will cross that bridge when I come to it. Thanks, Carolyn, for providing a venue for us to come and share where ever we are. I am looking forward to sharing with you all. Blessings and love, Debbi
|I am Ed Rogosky. I have little to say about myself, you have already met Debbi and through her, our kids and even a bit of our extended family (Carolyn) I have been many things in my life, Professional computer programmer, systems analyst, pastor and whatever is next for me in the life of the Western Pa. Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
I have a thing about people being accepted for whom they are; as a result, I get really put out over people who appear to be stuffed shirts, “holier than thou”. I am a Christian, but I loath Christians who think that I must be as they are.
I love to read. I have eclectic tastes in reading and will even read cereal boxes if forced to do so. I think that I am a fairly independent thinker and as a result, I ask the question:”WHY?” perhaps more than makes people comfortable.
I also have been accused of being a “divider” rather than a “uniter”.
|I live in western Pennsylvania.
I’m a member of the Pittsburgh Poetry Society. My poems and artwork have been published in several newspapers and journals. I have a chat book of poetry.
I also enjoy photography.
