Welcome Mat

Second Quarter 2019, writing for fun, welcome mat,

So, welcome and make yourself at home! I’ll just adjust the welcome mat…

Rolling Out the Welcome Mat to You!

My journey has taken a number of turns and there is no doubt in my mind that it will take several more.

So, I’ll start semi- from the beginning.

For my entire life, I have chafed against the idea that I would find something that would make me happy forever (except for my husband! 🙂 — but I digress). I mean it in the sense of a career. After all, how can I (or most people, for that matter) know what will keep me happy and engaged for, say, fifty years?

Complicating matters is the fact that I came of age long before computers were as ubiquitous as they are right now.

But I always knew I wanted something different. But it wasn’t until maybe the turn of this millennium that I finally started to see it with some clarity.

Is this it? Is blogging, social media, content, or some combination thereof… it?

I confess I am still unsure.

And if that makes me flaky to others, well, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet, folks.

See ya ’round the interwebz.

PS This blog is a continual work in progress. If it changes tomorrow, well, you can’t say I didn’t warn you.

Content, content, and more content

I blog. A lot. Seriously, I can’t stop blathering. So again, you cannot say that you did not have a warning.

Writing and Stuff

I’m a writer. I make characters out of thin air, and they come to life (if I’ve done my job right) with just the application of pixels or ink on a page.


Yes, I have them. Don’t you? Am I right about everything?

Ha, that is to laugh. But I try. 🙂
