A walk on the beach is good for the soul.





I WILL run again!





Freedom! Nothing like a run along the shore. . .

Hmm. . . it's been 8 months since I was last on SP, and much has changed. . . but much is still the same. Coping with my mother's and disabled brother's illnesses for the past 18 months has been a rollercoaster of a journey.

Along the way, I've been able to get back to running, complete a triathlon, and learn to play the ukulele! And I've begun to work seriously on my writing.

Hmm. . . it's been 8 months since I was last on SP, and much has changed. . . but much is still the same. Coping with my mother's and disabled brother's illnesses for the past 18 months has been a rollercoaster of a journey.

Along the way, I've been able to get back to running, complete a triathlon, and learn to play the ukulele! And I've begun to work seriously on my writing.

I have not kept off the weight I lost, but I am getting back on track again, with new challenges. I am now the proud owner of a CPap machine (my new best friend) and a light therapy box. I am currently undergoing testing for numerous health issues, but I'm hopeful that everything will work itself out eventually. I realize now that longterm stress can take its toll, and I am trying to get back into my stress-reducing exercise routines again (just working around the health issues. . .)

So. . . I'm back again! Thank you to all my SparkFriends for the goodies you sent in my absence. You are wonderful. . .

I write mainly non-fiction. My published books is local ghost stories, but I snuck the history in with the folklore. LOL I have a couple of other non-fictions in the works. And I am working on an historical novel and a couple of short horror fiction novels. We can compare notes in fall of 2012 when I come up to Stonington.
