About

In the second (or really third?) half of my life now. Moving into the more crone stage: out of my head, into my soul. My magic is returning after many years of having lost it to the streets of life. There have been some very dark times, but these have made my journey rich with the stuff of possibility. Because out of darkness has come the glittering beauty of illumination. It has come with struggle and toil, and not without help–but I am here, and I am mostly in tact, and I hope to share the rest of this journey with you all if you care to join me…….

Note:  I really appreciate no-one using my photos or reprinting my posts, poems or stories without my permission. I’m delighted to have you share anything, but please credit me when you do! Thanks.

    1. I am thankful…I will look into what this award is as soon as I get time. I’ve been so busy at work and Thanksgiving coming up! But I hope to start on it tonight. Thank you so very much!!

  1. Happy to have found your blog here! I’m a 50-something New Englander myself and an empty nester (although I use that term loosely). Looking forward to more posts!

    1. Thanks so much! You are very courageous. So many friends/relatives dealing this year with the disease. Ugh. Tougher for them than for me. That you can write about it is healing for us all. Thank you.

  2. Hi. Thanks for introducing yourself by following us–and good luck with your writing! If you’re a facebook user please visit the RAXA Collective page. We post complementary items on it. See you there!

  3. I’ve enjoyed your work very much; so much, in fact, I’ve nominated you for the Super Sweet Blogger award. You can check it out on my blog at ittymac. Congrats! Good work!

    1. Nah. After the Boston bombing, there was just so much garbage. I am just so tired of FB. And I have better things to do…like my blog. I thought I would just take a break, but now I just have no desire to go back.

    1. Hi, Thanks so much for nominating me! I always appreciate being nominated for these awards! Truly though, I’ve found I don’t really have the time to go through my list and find all the people and make a list to nominate everyone. And I found, hardly anyone else did it back either after I did it a couple of times! So instead, I humbly accept your kind thoughts, and instead I put my energy in just trying to keep up with a post a day and looking at other people’s posts! 🙂

  4. Thanks for the follow. I really liked you’re poetry. I used to write lyrics, however, lost touch with that style. I love this blogging thang tho! Like you, I haven’t taken the ‘big leap’ to try to get published, but blogging scratches my itch.. for now =-)

    1. Isn’t that the truth! I doubt I will ever get published, but my bucketlist wish is to be a writer. I would love to quit my job and just take photos and write all the time. But I do love blogging for sure. I love the folks I have met, the comments, the community and the great blogs out there!

  5. Beautiful to read your journey through life, fantastic bio words. I look forward your next post. Anyway, thousand thanks you have follow my poem photo blog. I follow your blog too, to be easy to follow your next story. Once again, thanks. Regards @Della

  6. I am honored and humbled you say so…….I am hoping to do so. With encouragement like this it helps. I’ve grown so much through my blog and followers like you!

  7. Hi, I can so relate, my kids are grown, and i find myself staring at babies in the supermarket..lol, it’s a big adjustment…so glad I found your blog…I have found writing to be a great outlet..look forward to your posts!!! and remember as I tell my friends 50 is the new 40 lol 🙂

  8. Thanks so much. I really do appreciate the award…I don’t always get a chance to them working 6 days a week most weeks. But I’m especially honored coming from you. I love your blog and photos! 🙂
