Growing up with tales and fables from other countries, parables and stories from the Bible, a collection of red books that held many poems, nursery rhymes, and fairy tales, I became enchanted with story telling and reading.

Then I began telling my own stories (well not quite the same. You know how kids have to figure out what is real and what is make-believe.) Later I learned how to read and soaked up more stories.

Just as these old tales were meant to entertain, instruct, help people heal or connect us all, I hope my tales and stories will do likewise for some of you. This is one reason I blog. I also look forward to being entertained, instructed, connected and healed through the blogs of other writers too.

Being a people person, I enjoy meeting people in person or on line. People have so many inspiring, humorous and interesting stories of their own to share. Through sharing my blog and reading the blogs of others I am a part of a World Village. I can connect with the world through blogs. (Yes I do have a balanced life away from the computer and enjoy non cyber friends too.) It is good to know there are others who feel and think like I do, regardless of how “unique” I might consider myself. lol. Who knows? Maybe some of us are a unifying influence helping to bring about more understanding and compassion among people all over the world. Maybe we are part of a peacemaking force?

I have many interests, many experiences, many friends, my two cats and my interesting family history. These parts of my life combine to give great sources for my many tales. My age and own experiences provide me with some stories of interest as well. I am a survivor, a people, animal, and nature lover and a lover of life. Learning, observing, helping, listening to the world and people around me are some of my pastimes.

My life revolves around my family, friends, 2 cats, and writing. Learning is a constant part of my life. Outrunning aging (well sort of, so far) is a driving force and a losing battle. So I am a “happy camper,” retired nurse, photographer, writer, reader, seeker of knowledge interesting or spiritual and love to kid around.

Viewing problems as challenges to solve has contributed to my survival and my positive attitude (after an initial freak out). It is said, “Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Well I must be Wonder Woman by now! I have a good sense of who I am because of my life experiences. All of which have given me more wisdom to offer in some of my blogs.

Since keeping my blog fresh is a challenge mostly my own photos will adorn the posts. Beauty in all of its forms is good for the soul. So take a look and see what you think. Enjoy.

  5. One of things I’m richly enjoying having joined the WordPress community is learning and growing with other bloggers. I have read dozens of blogs so far. Tonight, I’m here on yours. Nice energy…positive energy that is. I believe life happens the way it’s supposed to. We are making a difference each in our own special way. Isn’t life grand!?

  7. It’s nice to meet you. thanks for liking one of my comments. By the way, I am also a cat lover. I started writing rather late in my life. I have been at it a little over a year. I like learning and know I need to more. I apply learning more, not only to writing, but living as well.
