I did not think I’d be doing this, but here I am, starting a second bog!
Why on earth am I doing this? Because I’ve been asked to, which is a lovely reason. The folks over at my local Worthington, Minnesota newspaper, the Daily Globe (www.dglobe.com), asked if I’d be a part of this Area Voices blogging world, so how could I resist?
Some of the things I post will be the same as on www.afinedayforanepiphany.wordpress.com, but they won’t necessarily be posted at the same time – in other words, I may be re-writing old “epiphany” posts (perfecting them, if you will!) or I may be writing things that are a wee bit more local in nature as would interest the Daily Globe audience.
I am not “sponsored by”, endorsed, or otherwise supported by the Globe…however, it may be that they’ll find certain posts to be publishable, which would be rather nice!
So…onwards and upwards!
Well…out here on the prairie there’s nothing much that’s “up” besides the grain elevators and barn silos.
(The view from the way back of our property. Complete with silos!)
That’s why, when we moved out to “the country” 6.5 years ago, we were so thrilled with our location…there are actually hills out here! Small hills, maybe, compared to the hills of the Pacific Northwest where I grew up, but hills nonetheless.
I love hills. (Though not as much as I love mountains!) I don’t love to climb them, perhaps, though they are a lot of fun to coast down on a bicycle! I love to get a little perspective, to gain a little ground so as to improve my view.
And that, my friends, is what I’ll be blogging about – my views – from my window, from my former windows, from my perspective.
I was born in Miami, Florida, though I grew up in Washington, Oregon, and West Berlin, Germany. I currently live in Minnesota (and have for 17 years) but I also lived briefly in Wisconsin. I spent a summer in Thailand and have visited much of Europe as well as spending a memorable Thanksgiving in Tunisia. Somewhere in there I spend a summer in Connecticut as well as various vacations in Pennsylvania. All of these places have given me a lot of fodder for my viewpoints. Not to mention a lot of knickknacks on my dusty shelves.
I look forward to sharing my view with you – from my window to yours!
