Mary Danielsen

Welcome. I’m Mary Danielsen.  One of nine children, I grew up in Somerset County, a proud and true Jersey girl. Raised in a crowd I learned to make my voice heard through writing.

When I’m at work I’m usually writing about housing and why residents of New Jersey need a place to call home as much as they do the open space that surrounds us (30%+ of all the state’s land mass to be exact.) When I’m home, I’m either cooking, gardening, cycling, walking, out with my camera, volunteering somewhere, refinishing something or connecting with other ambassadors for LiveSTRONG. Either way, I’m always writing.

This blog is where I get off the dime and start writing for myself. It’s about my life. It’s about how I live.  I don’t know if I can define it yet.

Mary: Also known as Tommy’s mom, Helen’s mom, Alexandra’s mom, MD, Mary D, and Rick’s wife.

    I see that you were related to the cat doctor, Camuti.
    He meant a lot to my husband. In fact, he has framed magazine prints of him on our walls.
    It is a very personal story.
    Please get in touch with me,

    Caroline shared this with me and I have to send you a quick note to say that really touched my heart and was very beautiful. Your Mom seems like a special Lady and I see you take after her. I hope she enjoyed that letter as much as I did! Happy Birthday and God bless your Mom!

    From your posts I know that the city of Syracuse has at least one Fidardo’s Landi’s works. You have not written about it, but he was also one of five sculptors who competed for the city’s memorial to soldiers in 1906. I’ll be happy to share what I know.
