I started this blog because I was approaching a milestone birthday (hello, half-century!), and as much as I say I’m completely accepting of aging and all the supposed fabulousness that comes with it (um, wisdom?), I noticed myself preferring not to think about it. And not in a healthy “oh-what-does-age-matter?” kind of way. So, I decided to face it. And one of the ways of doing that is with this blog. As a friend said to me recently, why not do something that scares you? And one of the scariest things I can think of is to write and put myself out there. As a former newspaper reporter, I’m used to filing a story and moving on to the next one, but as a former newspaper editor I’m used to, well, editing. And editing some more.

One of the ways I’m forcing myself to write and not over-edit is to use a prompt on occasion. I love music, and the prompts will come from my itunes library — specifically, from the the title of the song. Sometimes I will add a song to the end of a post… just ’cause.

In general I will write on topics such as motherhood, sanity (they’re in conflict), music, running, and maybe, just maybe, even marriage.

FYI, I am a wife and mother of 12-year-old twin girls and a son, 14. I’m a former newspaper reporter, editor and freelance writer.

      Thanks, Riley, for checking out my blog! Yours is great too. I’ve been much more interested in poetry lately, for some reason and it’s very cool that you are a poet. Lots of wisdom in few words! Take care.
