Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

So, not a big fan of cities. We’ve been to Boston a few times and generally avoid spending time in the city. Now, I know people’s inner indignant-Boston-fans are struggling to get out of their lazy chairs and ready to battle … Continue reading
We had visited Newport a few years ago when I attended the Viable Paradise writing workshop. Again, I ain’t even gonna try linking the related posts.
Some might have seen a few posts about desserts we had aboard the Coral Princess on our last two cruises. I’d link the previous posts but working with this app is not for someone with my temperament. Anyway, this current … Continue reading

So, despite having the Internet, I’m finding it difficult doing updates. In part, it’s because larger photo files hang while uploading. In part, it’s because composing posts is a tad tedious due to the connection dropping and losing what I … Continue reading
