First Things First

My daughters went onto Facebook and played “Which Disney Princess Are You?”

I can tell you which one I am immediately: Dory.

Yes, the natural blue who didn’t recognize the sharks for what they were but had enough empathy, trust, and enthusiasm for the whole ocean.  You will notice how many times she should have died in the movie…..just saying.

Good morning and hello! Welcome to my brand new blog.

I intend to play a little here with bits of writing and hopefully entertain you in the process.

With five kids between 13 and 23 years old, a lovely variety of in-laws and outlaws on the family tree, and a 25 year marriage to my high school sweetheart, there should be plenty of grist for the mill. I may even poke about in your affairs once in a while.

A lot of laughing and loving influences show up in my spinning world on a regular basis and keep me just this side of sane. I would like to pass them on.

I feel a little lost most days. I try not to let it worry me. I just keep swimming.

Thanks for keeping me company!
