Welcome to my adventure. In March of 2014, I started this Sabbatical diary intending to take a break from the many crafty things that I had been involved with for years. I explored my writing and finished my first novel. Since then, I have changed course, mostly to writing, and I hope you will join my new adventure if you have even a latent desire to be authentic in your own life.
Recently my daughter and I went to an adjacent state to visit my mother who lives with her cat, Phantom. My daughter and I cleaned grandmother's house and enjoyed spending time with her. We laughed until we cried, telling stories of times past and relishing the company of visiting long-lost relatives. In the down times, grandma participated in her beloved past time: WORDS!
