imageMy little space here on the web has grown and changed, as I have, since I published the first post back in 2007.

Back then I was a Business Analyst living near Seattle, Washington: busy, stressed, and trying to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up.

Somehow, while I was working crazy long hours I managed to write a memoir about my journey, as an adoptee, to find that most-elusive thing I wanted most of all: family. (Boundaries. It took boundaries, tenacity, and a good measure of Starbucks coffee.)

Then I retired from my corporate job and life got good. Now, I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada with my husband (Gerry) and our doted-upon Yorkshire terrier (Maya). I’m a somewhat-fanatical grandma finding great fulfillment in my garden, in my kitchen, at my writing desk, and behind my camera (also sipping grande caramel macchiatos on Friday afternoons with my BFF).

I post early every morning: a quote I like, one of my photographs, and a few words about . . . well about anything that might be on my mind at that particular time.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you’ll come often. And if you’re inclined to leave a comment, well that would be simply lovely and much appreciated.
