Insomnia. Word wending. Shower- and drive-time inspirations. Hoping to make a difference on this twirling rock called Earth. These are the pints of fuel feeding this self-indulgent but well-intentioned blog, born on December 30, 2016. Let the bitter end of a hideous year birth a new way to cope with Life’s nastiest moments. In my first entry in my first blog after four decades as a writer, I am hoping to entertain, pontificate, provoke, organize, share, and celebrate.
