When you are describing,
A shape, or sound, or tint;
Don't state the matter plainly,
But put it in a hint;
And learn to look at all things,
With a sort of mental squint.
In 2007, I began My Two Blessings to practice and improve my writing skills while I talked about homeschooling and a potpourri of life. I'm in my 12th year of blogging now and major changes are in store for us. Our life is evolving once again as James has graduated from high school, we bought and renovated a property to move our business after 30 years of leasing, and writing has become an ongoing journey.
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, but I don’t have anything published…yet!
I wrangle three fur babies, one electronic's genius of a husband and one very imaginative 19 year old. I assist my husband with our mom and pop audio repair shop as well as host an online annual reading challenge - Read 52 Books in 52 Week.
Pull up a chair and join me in a bottle of wine, a hot mug of tea or a cup of my husband's special roasted coffee, while we chat about life, books, writing, and more.
