Blogging can be fun

I am so happy that my cyberspace friend Pat Garcia nominated me for the Blog of the year 2012.

I started writing the blog in February. I’ve ended up writing about all kinds of things: my family, being a baby boomer, and   inspirational people.  I like especially recollecting my late parents who I was so close with. I still miss them every single day.

I also have written movie and book reviews, and one of my favorite subjects, The Harmony Project, a group in Columbus, that has taught me there is real joy in volunteering.

I was always one of those kids who ran in the door and said to my mother, “ Guess what?”  So now, I can do it publicly .

The blog also helped me work through the pain of the sudden death of a good friend, Barbara Perrin, a member of a writer’s group I attended for the last 5 years. Losing her suddenly was one of the saddest things that ever happened to me.

I am thrilled to be nominated Pat Garcia! Ciao!
