Alas, the New Year dawned and unlike so many other years where I swore off making resolutions, this year I was determined to do something different to occupy my time other than fritter it away on Social Media sites. Writing is not new to me, I have done it for many years in many different capacities; student, teacher, marketer, advertiser, statistician and yes, even journalist. I am drawing my inspiration from several sources: a need to fill my cup with new friends, a desire to tell stories about the folks who live in my lovely state no matter where they originate from, and hankering to get myself outside and do something fulfilling.
I hope that this adventure that I am taking will be pleasing enough to have others visit, read and participate in the conversation. I anticipate hearing the stories that need to be told. We are not a nation of story-tellers, meaning that we do not pass down our oral histories and many of us do not keep diaries or journals, and even less of us share the journal material we do have with others. I look forward to this journey and I hope you do too.
