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.

  37. Thinking about participating in the Saturday prompt. Stream-of-conscious is a great form of writing. I have seen several bloggers doing this so I thought I would try.
    Looking forward to reading more of your writing here and on your fiction blog.
