Actually I suspect blue moons are not so rare as they sound, and change happens pretty regularly too though not always with a fanfare and bunting. Small decisions, chance comments, and a new course is taken.
At least, that’s how my life seems to work. Here I am, an English woman living in the Netherlands. How did I get here? Well, with the ferry. But before that I made a holiday destination choice, there I met a Dutchman, and then I made the decision to give it all a go. No big deal, if it doesn’t work out, head for the ferry again.
That was 15 years ago.
What am I doing here, on this site? A comment was made to me:
You should write a blog.
Okay. But what about?
About what you’ve done.
What have I done?
Lots of things.
So here I am, trying something new. I figure no-one’s reading this yet so I can work in gently, find my way slowly, experiment, see how it goes. Small steps. And maybe everything will change, maybe a new course is set.
And who am I? Where, and how, to start. In no particular order I am a reader, a learner, an ex-teacher, a home-cook, a patchworker more than a quilter, a network marketer, a museum guide, a haphazard gardener, a story-lover, a secret playwright, a dreamer, a last minuter, an ex-dieter, a health seeker, a bit of a pagan, a Terry Pratchett fan, a home-maker (but a really bad house wife), and just generally hopeful.
So I guess that’s a snapshot of what I shall be writing about.
But not all at once.
