New beginnings

I haven’t blogged in several years. I felt like I ran out of things to say. I got through a very bad relationship, basically made peace with it, and ended up with a really good, fairly calm life.

It’s still a very good life. Busy, but good.

I can’t seem to stop writing, though. I may not write very often, but I seem to need to write. It helps me focus and work through things. It also helps, when my brain is doing its hamster-on-a-wheel routine, to just write whatever random story builds itself in my head.

The website will be somewhat different from its last incarnation. There will be a fiction section now, where I write snippets of stories that show up. They may not be any good, but that’s life. There will also be comments, which I have not done in the past. I will be checking comments before they are posted, though. If they are rude or spam, I will delete them before they are posted. If that ticks you off, go read something else.

Who am I? I was born in 1975. I grew up in Oakland, CA, with two brothers, a sister, both parents, and an assortment of dogs and small animals. I didn’t grow up with a TV, so I became addicted to books. That addiction still exists. I’m married to a wonderful man, but I probably won’t talk about him much. I’m a belly dancer – I love it, but I’m still learning. I’m an aerobatic pilot when time and money allow. We have a reasonably well behaved Great Dane and two cats, all of which will probably get written about periodically. I won’t talk about work much, either, but I love my job. I live in Nevada now. We eventually hope to move to somewhere in Washington state. I really miss the rain. I have an MBA, which was a lot of work but completely worth it. Some days I think about getting a PhD because I like research, but that may never happen. I love swimming and singing. I swim as often as I can, but I don’t sing much right now due to time constraints. I’m sometimes a pain. When I believe in something, I will pursue it and make it work if at all possible. That does not always make other people happy.

If you have questions, feel free to ask them. I like discussion.

I hope you enjoy this little corner of the internet. I am looking forward to trying a few new things.
