Well…. Who I am is not nearly as important as how I became who I am. After all, it’s all about the trip; not the destination. My journey has brought many adventures, trials and passions. And I am still on that road to somewhere!

At the beginning of this strange and unpredictable voyage, I began to write. This passion has stuck, and throughout the seasons of my life this love of words has brought me joy and comfort. Because of this fancy I have  for conveying my thoughts into prose, I can express my gratitude for the many other pleasures that have kept me happily dancing, (though on occasion  barely moving) on this fickle paddleboard

Imagine if you will, a woman cuddling a baby while watering her many plants, with a stack of literature, classic and contemporary stacked neatly by her basket of multi colored yarn and knitting needles as she is dreaming of the mountains or perhaps the river and she is listening to classic rock while cooking and cleaning before choosing her next sewing project – and suddenly she is a  grandma on a pink paddle-board waving to her sweetheart and her grandchildren on the shore while contemplating what she is going to write next…

Well, that’s me! Happy reading and may we share this adventure we call life together.

    It has been such a blessing in my life to have had part of your life journey venture down some of the same roads I travel. You are so beautiful in so many ways and you have lifted me in my darkest days, bolstered me when I have felt I was failing or falling, and you have taught me to have a greater deeper appreciation for many of the little things in life. Keep smiling, for your smile fills a room like the radiance of the sun! My life is better because you are in it!

      You have been a dear friend and you write with your heart! We all have a story to tell, and yours is certainly worth visiting. Hopefully,the simple joys outweigh the mudslides and our stories end with many blessings from God. Love you friend.
