I am a grandmother of Six-two have been added since I started my blog-wonderful grandchildren and a mother of two adult children, I say adult, but they will always be my babies. And a wonderful, creative Step-Daughter. I have a wonderful husband who supports me in my dreams and aspirations of being a writer and pretty much anything that I want to do with my life. I am very fortunate in that regards. I am also a sister to a younger sister, an older brother and a younger brother who all live on the upper East Coast. A place that I miss quite often.
I am hoping to accomplish more than a couple of things by writing my blogs. I hope to raise awareness of social issues. I hope to increase my writing ability and my creativity. I want to meet new people and experience new places and cultures. Essentially living vicariously through their stories. Sounds kind of stalkerish (my own take on the word) and creepy, but when you can’t afford to travel, you have to make due. In the last half or quarter or how ever long, of my life I want to leave something good for my grandchildren. I want to make the world a better place. I hope I can bring comfort and light to someone who is in darkness. I want to see new paths and help others to see new paths that will enlighten and enrich their lives. I have no blinders on. I know I am no great speaker or savior or anyone of huge importance other than being a human being who wishes to share in and experience life.
I love to garden and take walks. I love photography, though the only camera I will be using is the one on my phone. But, I have captured some really neat pictures with my phone. I have a picture in my mind that I dream about and think about all the time. I hope someday to get it onto canvas or into a picture of some sort, even if it is written with “just” words. I believe, however, that there is magic in words. The title of Word Smith comes to mind. I would like to be a Word Smith. Someone who can forge various words into shapes and sounds and pictures. Words that can cast a spell and take a person on a journey of imagination or open their eyes to new possibilities in the world in which they live. That would be…fantastic.
