different folks

Even though there are some people with whom I do not want to spend much time, I am grateful for their gifts and the vast variety of gifts I observe in others. How dull the world would be if we were all the same. And if all were like me, how inefficient it would be. Different viewpoints, different talents, different experiences, and different struggles: I am in awe of how it all works together. In the ideal world, all would celebrate diversity, be open to differences and seek to learn from them. Expressing gratitude is one way for me to open those channels, and even when those differences cause strife and struggle, it can be an opportunity to grow. Thank goodness!

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
