Welcome to my narrative horizon about our wacky, wondrous world. There’s no pattern to my inspiration, so my pieces range from silly and mundane to serious and heartfelt. Here I share slice-of-light pieces about family, friendship, dogs, womanhood, aging, health and wellness, education, shopping, spirituality, reading, writing, entertainment, the moon, the sun and anything else under our sky.
I am a high energy, middle-age active woman who is constantly on the move. Filled calendar pages give me pleasure and purpose, but they can also become a schedule for stress. The older I get the more I need to recharge, relax, and refocus.
This blog gives me a chance to take a timeout to savor life, collect scattered memories, highlight sunny moments, and unclog cloudier ones. I seek balance, meaning, hope, and laughter that I hope to share with you through my stories.
I am a full-time high school English teacher, mother to two teenage daughters, pet owner to three furry dogs and one kitty, wife to one husband, and relative and friend to many.
I’m also a part-time sunshine who strives to be lively, bright, lighthearted, and comforting. Oh how I wish I could make my sunshine status full-time, but no can do. At times, I lose my light and zest. It can be a cockadoodle-dodo world, so being constantly happy and smiley while being honest and genuine is a trick I’d like to master.
For now, I’m a part-time sunshine, at best. Even when frazzled, my daily mission is to dazzle and find some extra beaming reason to smile and share why. Random rays and small warm shimmers are the best, like double rainbows at a wedding, a greeting card among the bills in my mailbox, or a spotless bedroom cleaned by my daughters (who jest that this blog should be called Part-Time Sunshine, Full-Time Nut Job).
I invite you to follow me on my horizon that is party sunny, clearly spunky, and always sincere.
