This is my first blog on any subject. As you know from my website, I’m new to writing personal stories. Finance and administrative policy has been my bailiwick. I waded into newspaper writing briefly with stories about supporting peace efforts and women’s equality. However, at this point so many political endeavors are filled with distress, distraction and distrust, I’m not inclined to write about them. I hope that changes in the future.
Right now I’m pursuing personal stories about travel and family. My first journey was precipitated by the end of a 30 year marriage which was an overwhelming experience. I didn’t know who I was after that. So I spent thirty eight days walking and thinking on the Camino de Santiago, and meeting others who were doing the same. Everybody had their own reason.
I’m finding personal stories inspiring and refreshing to write. Are you writing?
*If you can, please respond in 250 words or less. Otherwise it takes too much time away from my writing. I hope to blog weekly.
