Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome.
I began this blog out of my love of writing and my love of a running commentary. I am a public librarian by day and an animal activist, dessert enthusiast, and movie buff by night.
I am a lifelong vegetarian who has recently made the gradual transition over to veganism. As Kathy Freston says, “progress, not perfection.” Animal activism is a very big part of my life, and I hope that I can raise awareness through this blog.
I am in the process of learning about nutrition, health, and exercise and want to share that information with all of you. I love to empower women to feel good about themselves and be comfortable in their own skin. It’s taken me a long time to get there, but now that I am, I want everyone to feel as good as I do.
I simply love entertainment. I was raised by parents who exposed me to great films while I was growing up — from Some Like it Hot to The Wizard of Oz, from Manhattan Murder Mystery to Gone with the Wind. As a teenager, I developed a crush on Leonardo DiCaprio that still hasn’t really gone away, despite treatment. I love anything having to do with the Titanic (and before you ask — yes, I became interested in that before the movie.) I have a very sarcastic way of speaking — you will find that I love to celebrate certain celebrities and mock others.
As a writer, I love poetry, so I post a different poem every Friday as a “poem of the week.”
I hope you enjoy reading, and I look forward to your comments. I have a lot of stories to tell, and I hope to share them with you. Stop by my barn on the way out and say hi to the critters!
Thanks for reading!
