2014: Just A Number?

1st time in elevator wearing headdressThe New Year is already hours old in Australia and coming quickly to friends in Europe.

I am thinking in terms of  retrospective. How did I get here and where am I going? What started the writing/ blogging life?

In first grade it was “The Busy Bee” poem, published on the ditto machine by Mr. Polakis. I can’t even recall the stories I wrote for the High School paper… Somehow, I lost my way in college (so many of us did in the ‘70’s– ;)). And then, ‘grown-up’ voices whispered about practicality and a degree in social work followed.

Fast forward to 12/31/13…a dozen years volunteering for community newspapers and over the last fourteen months, attempting a freelance business launch and helping out local organizations and individuals with photography services. Recently I decided to add travel writing and photography to my repertoire– with stories about Minneapolis and Asheville, NC, St Augustine & Tarpon Springs, FL and Rte 61 Minnesota.

It really is all about soldiering on, and capturing moments. Here’s to the next 12 months!

P.S. I just applied for an assistant Travel Writer position– I never get my hopes up these days– but it would be exciting to get a chance!
