The Journey of Joyous Living Begins!

How appropriate that spring is fully underway and my writing website is too!  Welcome to my new blog, ­where joyous living is the inspiration and topics range as freely as the spring winds.

Why now, you ask?

For those that know me, this process started two years ago. Academically trained as a writer, I realized that it was time to return to the art. I thought I was ready but first life threw me a few curve balls; the passage of a parent, a new life partnership and relocation to a new state. Apparently, my writing had to simmer in the pot just a little longer.

Though shocking, those curve balls have been a gift. Fueled by their transformative nature these changes have provided me a new power. Firmly rooted in strength, I am a fully mature woman expressing the ongoing joy of a child.

 In other words, today I am the writer I’ve longed to become!

With my rejuvenated sense of purpose, you must wonder what will you find here? Hopefully well written articles that spark your own curiosity and sense of humor. Perhaps even your own sense of exploration. I can promise you this, dear reader, you will indeed find variety in my postings!
