What Was I Thinking?

Inspired by my friend, Christopher Swan, (be the second to follow his blog @ I've decided to start my own blog. I've grown tired of the conversations that seem to fill my head, and need someplace to empty some of it out. Let's face it, at my age I quickly run out of room for new information. Let us hope that some of you benefit from my meanderings....or at least find some level of entertainment. At this moment, 7:30 in the evening and struggling to decide whether to stay here at the office and work, or to go home, snuggle with my daughter, and hit the wireless over dinner and a glass of wine, I am finding it difficult to focus on the task at hand. And I am terrified at the fact that in this, my very first blog, I will say nothing of particular interest or value. Still, it is the beginning of an experiment, and I have taken my first steps. So, here's to all who blog, and all who read them....may we periodically find nuggets of brilliance, words that shake us to our core, conversations that compel us to write or just to talk more, and may we occasionally make each other laugh so hard we pee our pants! xoxox


  1. I love listening to you share ideas and thoughts. You are full of great passion. I hope this is the beginning of you sharing your ideas regularly.

  2. I've been wanting to post a comment since I read your first blog in January, but I just figured out how! I agree with Christopher that your passion is obvious in your words, and I can hear your voice in those words.

    Writing gives us an outlet to release what I call "noise in our heads"...but it's usually good noise that comes from resisting the overwhelming pressure to succumb to the "zombie-mom" mentality. So, let me cheer you on with your quest to make sense of those conversations in your head. Don't ever ignore them! Our daughters will benefit from being raised by "moms who think" regardless of how eccentric we may seem! :)
