I Think So

A friend recently posted a meme on Facebook about the INFJ personality type, which is only 1-3 % of the population. It’s also my type, as well as hers I assume.

Finding Meaning

My earliest memory of Christmas was of wandering out of bed on route to the bathroom and glancing down the hallway to see my Mom at the kitchen table wrapping gifts. By her elbow was a box containing a Peanuts electric toothbrush. The next morning, I unwrapped a gift from the Tooth Fairy; it was …

Nothing Else Matters

I’ve written about this before, my youth reading and watching crime/mystery books/movies, and how age/maturity has changed my interests. This last week, it’s been all W-Channel and HALLMARK movies, which honestly, was NEVER me.  When my husband and I met, and especially in the first… ten, or so years of our marriage, he tried–and failed–to …

2018 has proven a wonderful year for me. I realized a long-held dream in publishing not one, but two novels! I also spent an amazing spring and summer traveling around BC with my husband in our travel trailer. We enjoy our home-away-from-home (and my mobile office) so much, we’re already itching to get out in …
