Self Portrait January 2012When I was in the eighth grade, I had to write a story using a list of vocabulary words. Most of my classmates wrote a page or two. I wrote a novella.

After nearly 20 years in journalism I made a big leap to fiction and it’s literally a work in progress. I’m not sure if anything will come of it, but I have ideas and must do something with them.

My original blog was created in 2005 to maintain regular contact with our birth families and extended family members who don’t live near us. Over the last decade it has provided a powerful way to stay connected with them and keep those we love in the fold of our everyday goings-on.

On this blog you’ll find photos and stories about our boys, examples of my photography work, book reviews, and other tidbits. There is the occasional rant, but nothing too upsetting. No one likes a complainer.

Whether we know you in real life or not, thanks for dropping by and come back soon.
