Single-but-attached 47-year old seeking personal satisfaction through blogging. A lifelong southerner, I have recently moved to urban Ohio and am transitioning from living in the Bible Belt to the place I think of as the crack showing above its waistband (“crack” being the operative word– there’s lots of it here).
In past incarnations, I’ve been a singing telegram girl, a cocktail waitress, a freelance greeting card/slogan writer, an optician, a payroll clerk, a counselor/advocate at a university, and a Human Resources coördinator.
I have fibromyalgia, which has sort of changed the course of my life. I have a separate blog about that. If you’re interested, you can view it here.
Hobbies are: painting, photography, writing, bicycling, art, movies, music and reading.
Favorite people in the universe: Tom (my angel), my two precious children, and my amazing friends and family.
I love feedback– please feel free to leave comments, or contact me at the address listed on my sidebar. Happy trails to you!
Update (October 5th, 2010): Wow, how things have changed. Since writing this, I’ve lived in Tennessee, Texas and now Arkansas. My fibromyalgia has been in remission for more than a year (woo hoo!). Tom and I split up, and one of those precious children of mine recently had a baby. I acquired Theo the Wonderdog ®, my little Chihuahua/ Jack Russell mix. I turned fifty and lived to tell about it.
I’m still writing, still painting, still bicycling (though I have a flat right now). I walk an awful lot, hike when I can, and not too long ago I floated down a river in a canoe and long to do it again- as many times as I can. I’m learning guitar and I’ve been writing some really terrible songs lately.
I don’t spend quite as much time on this blog as I used to, but I will always come back to it. Life is good, life is ever changing, life keeps me busy. xoxox
Update (November 3rd, 2011): It’s been the most incredible year. For one thing, I SUPPORTED MYSELF BY WRITING. I met incredible people, traveled, camped, fished and fell in love with a most wonderful man. First we were friends, then roommates, then Significant Others and, as of eighteen days ago, husband and wife. He won’t let Theo the Wonderdog® call him “Dad,” but otherwise, we’ve all blended splendidly. The future’s so bright, I have to wear sunscreen, a visor AND shades.
