The New Look

Hello everyone, I’d like to know how you like the new look of my blog. I switched the theme so it will read better on various devices. There is still  fine-tuning left to do but I will get to it. Please let me know what you think. In other news, a little story I wrote is now published within the winter issue of Spotlight On Recovery magazine. The article is titled Salute to Strangers. Oh, and the current header  image is a mixed media: colored pencil, magic marker, water color, and a smidgen of acrylic. It is the bottom half … Continue reading The New Look

About Blog Archives

This post is in response to Writing 201’s Day 5 assignment: Make the Most of Your Archives. The forget-me-not is my favorite flower, not only reminding me of my childhood in Alaskan mountains, but also of other stories I have to share.What better photo do I have reminding me about my archives? None I can think of. Let me remind readers that I’m relatively new at blogging and jumped in without any preconceived ideas about my blog’s organization. The fact that this blog can use improvement in that area prompted me to do some homework. Prior to receiving this assignment, … Continue reading About Blog Archives

Sequim Lavender

This past weekend was the Sequim Lavender Festival. I don’t know which has worse traffic, the Irrigation (Irritation) Festival or the Lavender Festival. Both are huge events for such a small town. For those of us living here, trying to make left hand turns onto the only connecting road (Highway 101) is near impossible. Twenty minute waits to make a left turn onto the highway while keeping your foot on the brake while you’re facing downhill anyway is frightening. Your legs and feet cramp up. Out-of-towners are always in a huge hurry and rarely if ever are they polite enough … Continue reading Sequim Lavender

The Rosie Dog Story

This story is dedicated to a teacher (of Spanish,) traveler, and blogger, Deirdre, of Amble On Tours. Although I took two years of Spanish in high school, I never was able to grasp the language for everyday use. I respect not only her skills, but her ability to pass them on to her students. The ability to communicate is paramount. Yet, sometimes rudimentary skills and our sense of community are all we have. June 6, 2003; revised July 20, 2015 We live in the country directly across the street from a main logging road. Every weekend many people like us … Continue reading The Rosie Dog Story

Writing 201: Blog goals

July 20, 2015 This post covers the  Day 1 assignment in WordPress Writing 201. Why do I blog? After years of coaching other writers and ghostwriting, I’d like readers to know my writing, my voice. I don’t mind being a shadow person and I love what I do but, there are so many things I want to write about. If my blog exceeded my wildest dreams, what would that look like? I’ve placed many goals in answer to that question that I’ll keep private for now. I’m still so new to blogging that I think this is a question I’ll … Continue reading Writing 201: Blog goals
