I am a woman, wife, mother, technical writer, day-dreamer, great-aunt.  I like; writing, reading, laughing, kayaking, walking, holding hands with my husband, nights when I can see the milky way.  I wish I could; have a weekly, invigorating exchange of thoughts, creations and ideas, see the Northern Lights, walk the Appalachian Trail, find a church family.  In this blog I promise to; be honest,  kind (to most), not to take myself too seriously, have fun.

Life has been good to me, and I am humbled.

    Bonnie! LOVE IT! You already know that I am probably one of your biggest fans, in general, but I do love your writing – I so wish I could find that short story “First Kiss” or whatever it was called, because, especially after reading The Car by the Curb, I could swear it was your voice. It’s out there, somewhere!

    Been devouring Jodi Picoult books – since seeing “My Sister’s Keeper” after which I cried for 2 hours. The most recent one I read, “19 Minutes” was especially poignant. Have you read her?


  2. Things that make me cry are not on the short list! If you have an adolescent memory you’d like to share, please feel free!
    Too weird to think there is someone out there with my voice. It’s MY VOICE! There are a bunch of people out there with my FACE too. I constantly get people (complete strangers) who approach me asking
    – if I used to work with them. No.
    – if my last name is ________, because they know someone who looks just like me and we have to be sisters! No.
    – if I graduated from __________ high school in the year _______, because they are sure we went to school together. No.
    My sister-in-law even sent me a card with a painting of MY FACE on it!! Do I know the artist?? No. Starts to make me suspect that maybe God got tired of creating new faces, and just used the one I got stuck with over and over again.
    Same voice, same face … this does not bode well for the artistic ego! Probably a blessing, because the most important thing to let go in writing is the ego. I’ll write for the release, and RIGHT now let go of the fantasy that I have something unique to say that no one in the history of the world has ever said. Poof! It’s gone 🙂

    I’m gonna love this site for one very selfish reason. I get to enjoy the semi-truth woven into your fiction because I KNOW the Aunt Eleanor’s of your world. 🙂 Thanks for starting this up. I’ve loved both of your posts.
