About Me

Who is me? Let’s see… My brain only stops working when it gets overloaded and then I see black, which is because the heel of my hand is pressing against my forehead. It’s a pose very familiar to those close to me and one my eldest son imitates very well, to my chagrin. I rarely see my middle son, though he is always home, glued to Youtube. My youngest is my constant source of amusement and is currently sitting on my lap, flipping through channels and rubbing my head with his fist. So yeah, I guess I’m a mom.

I write. I observe. And then I write some more. People and their behaviour fascinate me endlessly. I read. A lot. I love to learn.

And no matter where I am, I’m here.

  5. Hi Linda! I haven’t taken part in some time, but today’s word hit a nerve. ‘Mean Mothers’ is something I’ve been meaning to write about for a long time, so I just did.
    I’ve written my most personal and intimate post to date, and I feel immensely relieved.
    Thanks for the prompt!

  29. I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. No pressure to participate, as you’ve got bigger fish to fry here, keeping up with all your prompts and editing and writing and mothering and….

    I did it as a way to show you how grateful I am that we crossed paths on here. Millions of bloggers…could have just as easily never found you. Thank you for lighting a fire under my ass each Saturday. I look at you like a mentor:)
