Ana’s favorite quotation stems from William Somerset Maugham’s novel The Painted Veil— “I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”
Ana is a proud parent to young Cody–a beagle-hound mix she rescued in April 2017.
