Updated December 2016
This blog started years ago on a different site as a memoir for my children, but over time I found that I wanted to expand, to write on other topics, to see where my thoughts and keyboard would take me.
What you read now has became a journey of self-expression. Some of the words on these pages are hardly worth my time or yours, but I suppose that’s what you do when you write about random things. I write when I feel inspired. I write about varied topics. I post little artistic creations. I rant sometimes as well. I am about as random as they come, and I plan to stay that way.
I live in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. This is our coastline-the wild Pacific Ocean.
I have three adult children, and two grandchildren who I love more than life itself. I am an atheist, a feminist, and a late returner to college, having earned a BA in Sociology in 2014. I have been a doula, a childbirth educator, a tutor, and a dental assistant. If I could go anywhere right this minute it would be to a cozy cabin overlooking that coastline in the picture above. I would play soft music, sit by a crackling fire, enjoy a glass of wine, and daydream of what might have been – and what may still be ahead.
Newest update- July 2018
While all the above is still very true, a few things have changed, especially within the last year. I am now divorced. The decision to move ahead with that process was probably brewing when I wrote that last update. To move ahead and to find the person I used to be, the one I like a whole lot more than who I had become, led me to put aside my fear and end my marriage. In just weeks, a full year will have passed since my divorce. It was the right and best decision even at a time in my life when many people are considering retirement and all that brings. I have a small but comfortable place to call my own (although I still yearn for that beach cabin), a part-time job that I love, and a sense of freedom and lightness that had been missing for years.
I invite you to read freely, comment extensively, share my words if so inclined, and visit often.
Thanks for stopping by!
