For me, creating a blog has been an elusive beast.

A place to sitIt’s something I’d meant to do years ago, but instead I raised children, finished graduate school, adopted rescue dogs, worked fulltime, then part time, then fulltime, and now part time again. I planted a garden, rearranged furniture, threw birthday and graduation parties, went out to dinner, walked in the woods and on the beach, travelled, wrote, read, and even did the dishes and the laundry now and then.

So now, going forward, whenever anything amazing or weird happens, I can share it here, and I hope your weird and amazing stories will echo back to me.
