I am revisiting the world of blogging with a new mantra-Opting for Optimism.  I decided on this when I realized how ‘dragged down’ the world seemed after 2016.

I want to use my blog as an area of connecting to others through compassion and humor.   I don’t have a Master Plan but I hope to find a way to combine the two into my Post. Some may just be an attempt at humor while others may emphasize compassion. I don’t know. I do know, this will always be a work in progress.

I believe we are all connected and, because of this, we need to figure out how to happily live with each other. We can only achieve this if we treat each other with love. Somehow we need to live that age old adage-Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The blog will hopefully help me to remember this as I stumble through the rest of my life.  I hope to find advice and support from others. I need all the help I can get.

What hasn’t changed about my blog is that I still need at least a dozen revisions before I have the nerve to publish and, just as I do that, I spot one more mistake. I’m old enough to really miss writing everything longhand on yellow ruled paper but lazy enough to attempt to forgo this step as I blog. I  value any advice from anyone who visits my spot. I still procrastinate but I do hope to always get back to my readers.
