Welcome … I have had this blog for a number of years but it amounted to nothing more than a domain name… it was empty and I was absent… and I certainly hope that’s not indicative of my Life thus far so I’m here to be present and accounted for …  In a few months, I’m reaching a milestone of 60 YEARS OLD… O M G that’s profound.  It got me thinking WHO AM I? WHAT AM I? WHAT HAVE I DONE? WHERE HAVE I BEEN? WHERE AM I GOING? And since I’m still breathing I KNOW it’s not too late to take a hard look around me and to learn something new by challenging my way of thinking (and anyone else who is listening and/or reading this) and speaking up and hopefully just maybe doing some things differently here and there… I have BIG opinions and am very familiar with what is said about Opinions… I’m a woman, mother, grandmother and now a Senior … Jeezus… and this will be a reflection and collection of conversations I have with myself about all of this… there will be some funny bits but it’s all going to be real… part of what has stirred me into action is what is happening in the world around us and a big part of that is the Occupant of the White House… I’m choosing to put this front and center so as a Reader you can also make a choice … I’ve not been very politically informed or knowledgeable… I guess is the best way to put it and that’s something I do regret but I can’t sit back and shut up any longer … because I’m frightened and I need to understand more and be less scared so… I will be exploring many facets of MY life from every corner and I should probably say … if there’s anything you don’t like… you should start your own blog and get that shit off your chest… just like I’m doing here…  DISCLAIMER: there WILL be copious 4-letter words… some regurgitation of current events … reflections of dumbass mistakes I’ve made along the way and what if anything I’ve learned and some short stories sprinkled in … So Off we go…
