Where to begin? I have resisted the blogosphere until recently when I have felt the tug to jump in with both feet. So here I am. No fan fare, no parade, no loud music or fireworks displays. I make no promises and I have arrived with no expectations. Yet here I am. I am unsure of the direction or purpose of my writing other than to share my life's experiences, some monumental and others not quite so profound. And here I am.
