I am sitting at my computer on the 40th week of my first pregnancy. Now that I am off work for the next year, I find myself thinking about all that I have accomplished in 37 years, along with the various personal aspirations yet unfulfilled. To wit, I gathered together my scattered journals filled with years of my creative writing. With that initial idea, I started to review all my passions so that I could pass them on to my daughter, who will likely read more from a computer than from my library of books. So, as a result, this blog will contain my writing, photos, favourite things, family recipes, and of course, my opinions on current events. I hope that by blogging she will grow to understand me as more than her mother.
