I am the shortest in my family of four; even my two children have passed me in height and my husband has always had the advantage of being able to look over my head. But I measure up in other ways. I am unique. Every time we move, I get to be a new person. And we move a lot. In the last 22 years of my husband’s career, we have moved 12 times. That doesn’t count my childhood career as a military brat.
I haven’t held a paying job in 20 years – life as a military wife can do that to a person. In that time, I’ve traveled, I’ve taught my children, I’ve dabbled in hobbies from quilting to water color painting, and I’ve written a lot. I love food and wine, art and culture, theatre and books, the outdoors and nature, photography and camping, hiking and adventure. I don’t like country western music (except for the occasional Kenny Rogers piece that brings back a childhood memory) and I hate bigots. Other than that, I’m a pretty easy going person.
This blog is a work in progress and your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Right now, I’m publishing from Quito, Ecuador. I try to publish written works two times a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, a photo postcard of a place we have lived on Fridays, a recipe and story on Saturdays, and a Backyard Bird on Sundays. Of course, our backyard is always changing so the birds might be from anywhere!
