Hi there! Although this is not my first time blogging, it is my first time being a serious blogger.
Let me tell you a little about who I am. I just celebrated my 49th birthday. I’m married to my best friend, Cheryl and we have 2 daughters. Gil is 24 and Katie is 13. I am a Clinical Social Worker in private practice with 20+ years experience. It is a profession that I love and am deeply committed to although I did seriously consider seminary about 5 years ago. As with everything in my life, I tend to go in search of what truly makes me happy and fullfilled and I have found spirituality and self-love to be the 2 most powerful areas in my life. If I’m not filled, then I can’t be the best wife, mother, friend or therapist that I know I can be.
To that end I find reading everything and anything stimulating. One of the things that I will be sharing here are books that I’ve read and what I thought of them. I hope if it’s something you’ve read, we can share thoughts! I read everything from autobiographies/biography’s, murder mysteries, self help, political, historical, true crime, religion, poetry and so much more.
I have enjoyed quilting in the past and after finally sorting out my sewing room am ready to take it up again. I will share pictures as they come.
Music is another passion of mine. I am a huge folk music fan. There is just something about a good folk song to remind us of our history. I just finished reading Pete Seeger: In His Own Words and as I was reading letters and articles that he had written, I had to go back and check the date on the letters because it seemed like he was writing about the present day but these letters/articles were written in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. The man was a humble genius. I can only imagine him looking down on the earth and the US in particular and shaking his head and saying, “when will they ever learn..”?
It is my intention to write everyday. About what? I guess you’ll have to check back and see!
