“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”
― William Wordsworth
In 2007, I began My Two Blessings to practice and improve my writing skills while I talked about homeschooling and a potpourri of life. 2021 will be My Two Blessings 14th anniversary and our life keeps evolving. James graduated from high school, we bought and renovated a property for our business and moved after 30 years of leasing, and writing has become an ongoing journey for not only me, but James as well.
I’m an avid reader and reading is as necessary as breathing. I get rather crotchety without my books. Writing is different since I came to it so late in life. It’s a choice, a love, a desire. I don’t need to write, I want to write. Writing is a never ending process of learning and growing. After years of writing business letters, reports and briefs, I discovered that once I started putting pen to paper, I had an excuse to daydream. I’ve been writing for several years now and still learning more about the craft and myself every day.
I wrangle three fur babies, my electronics genius husband whom I work with in our mom and pop audio repair shop, plus our 21 year old son who has joined me on the blog and loves to write about Star Wars, comic books, video games, and more. I also host an online annual reading challenge - Read 52 Books in 52 Week.
Join me in my virtual parlor for a glass of wine, or a cup of my husband's special roasted coffee, while we chat about life, books, writing, and more.
