Hello! I grew up in the Mid-Hudson Valley in the ‘70s and ‘80s. I majored in English with a Writing Concentration and received a B.A. from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York. I was inspired by Linda Ellerbee and her book, And So It Goes: Adventures in Television. My journalism career was short-lived, but I continued writing on my own, mostly in journals, and in personal essays and by taking online classes once in a while.
I think everyone should have an outlet to express themselves and this blog is my way to share memories and more recent experiences, hopefully in a positive light. Some topics of interest to me are nostalgic stories about growing up in the 1970s in Upstate New York, and movies, music, television and books that I enjoy, and nature with its rocks, fossils and animals. See the drop-down blog menu for categories if you have a particular interest.
Welcome! Thank you for taking time to look around.
