When I was a child I kept a journal, loving to write my thoughts. Part of the joy was avoiding the chaos of the not so quiet family which included a non-stop talking mother, a gentle father, and old brother, younger sister and baby brother. We also had a large extended family although the closest I had to grandparents were elderly aunts and uncles, who were actually probably around my current age.
I only recently began to look at blogs and listening to podcasts, driven by being a little lost following retirement, both mine and my husband’s. We aren’t idle, but I will log some of the challenges we have faced in future blogs.
The hardest part: the technology!!! I am relatively computer savvy, but this is nuts! So the development of this site may be slow. So far the best part is putting my thoughts “on paper”. That was always a way to help me think things through.
