Writing affords me the outlet and opportunity to share my thoughts on life and the world around me. 

Good or bad, it is what it is and I write it as I see it, or live it. Like a photographer who scans a scene for the optimum shot, I use words to illustrate a situation or a space in time. I take a real life scenario and give it life through words.

I'm happily divorced, and mom to two "grown children"...waiting to be a gramma some day.

I feel blessed to have been able to eek out a living doing the thing I love to do most. I began in newspapers, but I felt the process was too restrained. I'm a habitual right brain thinker, so not having the freedom to express myself was agony.

The approach to news writing is so confined and so limiting that I actually began to speak in very precise mono syllabic sentences...it was time to go and free my mind.

So, I'm dipping my toes here and there to see where the water is warmest - less shark infested. HubPages seemed like a great venue.
