A Bit About Me and Maybe Why I'm Here. . .

I live in a small house with a large, green, and tree-lined backyard. Perfect for sitting out on an evening with my partner and our two Black Labrador Retrievers. The four of us share the small house with two feline companions. We are a Pack and the intricacies of our relationships is endlessly fascinating and enlightening. Although, occasionally, I do wish I could walk out of the house without dog or cat hair clinging to everything I own.

I am an eclectic (that's ec-lec-tic, not eccentric). I have a wide variety of interests and have created myself from them. In other words, I know quite a bit about a lot but an expert on nothing, and that suits me fine. I'd rather share than teach. The learning is so much more exciting, don't you think?

I have a 9-5 job, but I am a writer - always have been. It won't let me go and, while that is often agony (especially when it comes to rewrites...and rewrites...and rewrites...oh, and commas), I do rejoice in it. I wouldn't have it any other way. Writing is a passion. It drives me. It also is my "safe" way of communicating. I "howl in silence" because speaking was something that was squished out of me as a child. I found my outlet with a pencil and paper. Children are such resourceful little buggers!

So, here I howl.

New Beginnings...Once Again

Two years ago I began a blog. I had something to say then, I suppose. Then the muck of life barged in and the blog came to an abrupt halt. Nothing unusual for me. I've been an off-again, on-again journal writer for most my life.

I must have something to say again. I'm darned what it might be, but here's the blog. Perhaps we'll find that out together.

I'll be back.
