A discerning wordsmith who hopes my thoughts are perceptive, clever, insightful, astute, wise, funny and sensitive. But be warned, sometimes the words tumble out faster than I can think.

I chose this life

I have been writing blog posts about the terrible situation that invaded our lives. Cancer really sucks. My latest post is the first link below. The second link will take you to the many posts I’ve written about this beginning in April of 2017. To those of you who have suffered the terrible loss of a loved one, perhaps some of my words will sound familiar and help.

A bit of our love story……..

A shattered life

My life has been shattered. Since April 23rd of this year I have written many posts about what has affected my family and me through the illness of my husband and his subsequent passing. The posts seemed to flow out of my head and heart almost like a compulsion. I’m walking down a terrible, complicated road as are so many others in like circumstances. The feedback I’ve received on these posts seem to echo others’ feelings who have gone through similar times. So, I’m posting the link to my blog posts with the hope that those of you who may be going down that road may find my thoughts mirroring yours and perhaps get some comfort in knowing you’re not alone.


Continuing the narrative

I’ve added more posts. Grieving doesn’t go away and The W word. These thoughts compel me to write about them and it seems to be cathartic for me. Perhaps these words will help those who are walking the same path I am.



Some random observations

Words and thoughts keep popping out.



Sleep is elusive

Sleep is overrated!



The meltdowns

An evening of my life……..



And now, this……..

The continuing saga…….
