I am, therefore I write

Random musings on my life and the world

About the author of this blog

This blog is a journey, an exploration of me.

It may be random, it may be inconsistent, but it is what I think about, what I care about, what I believe and what I know.

Since initially writing the above brief insight into my world, I have: (in random order)

1. Become semi-retired

2. Earned my college degree in Sociology-Summa Cum Laude

3. Become a grandmother

4. Acquired a wonderful son-in-law and a lovely daughter-in-law

5. Lost 30 lbs.

6. Considered going back to college again for another degree (but nixed that idea)

7. Admitted to being an atheist

8. Admitted to being a feminist

9. Tried to write poetry for pleasure

10. Found a renewed interest in sharing myself through words in this blog.

In an even more current update (April 2015) I have:

11. Taken a blogging break to ‘find my voice’ and decided I am still looking and most likely will be for some time

12. Thought about divorce, and am still thinking but unable to act

13. Will find myself a grandma for the 2nd time, come this fall 2015

14. Continued to wonder if I will ever feel completely fulfilled, or settled, or happy…or ?

I invite you to read freely, comment extensively, share my words if so inclined, and visit often.

  1. What a lovely About Me page. I’m most impressed by number 5. I’d give anything to lose 30 pounds.

    • Thanks!
      It was amazing how cutting sugar, and really planning out veggie filled meals made a huge difference in the way my body works. It was a great feeling to see the lbs. drop off and just about 1 month ago I was back into size 10 jeans very comfortably. Haven’t seen size 10 in quite some time. :)

  2. Hi Deb,
    I have been following your site for awhile. I’m glad you have discovered us at swo8. Welcome.


  3. Life is random and inconsistent, it’s only natural that our thoughts should be so as well. Yours is one of my favorite “About” pages I’ve read to date.


  4. Hi, have mentioned you here http://bodhisattvaintraining.wordpress.com/an-award-passing-it-on
